The collection that interested me most was the modern native Portuguese artists, Sculptors and Graphic designers. The Masters Collection was not up the standards of many European cities but I was most impressed by the depth of national talent.

Although it can't be considered a big museum in terms of the numbers of paintings in exibition it shows a considerable variety of paintings representative of the art of Arpad Szenes and Vieira da Silva.

Nice museum on the Praca da Amoreiras where you'll also find the Mãe d'Água museum. Impressive collection of the works of Vieira da Silva. We only saw a few paintings of Arpad Szenes. I guess that they alternate the collection regularly. There are also some...More

I went here a couple of times for a coffee in the excellent little cafe, and once to view the exhibition. I had never heard of the artists and loved learning all about them. The gallery was empty one morning, so one of the front...More
