to Sept 25 | SCULPTURE EXHIBIT | João da Silva: O Escultor Animalista | Avenida | FREE
João da Silva (1880-1960) was a Portuguese artist, sculptor, medal-maker, among other things. Despite being little-known outside of Portugal, he was good at what he did.
Lisbon’s National Society of Fine Arts knows this, and that’s why they invite you to see João’s stuff in its natural habitat all summer long.
Here’s what they say:
“This exhibition presents the animalist aspect of the author, where his pieces are suspended in the gesture, in the agile and momentary movements of the young animals.”
Show up until Sept 25.
