"For the purpose of bringing true ART experiences to people…
from the gallery to the NEW FORM OF GALLERY"
We've prepared YOU an introduction to Portuguese art from the 19th and 20th centuries, including
Modern and Contemporary works, up to the present day
Dive into Portuguese art while sipping a glass of champagne accompanied by dark chocolate bites and tasting the legendary Portuguese "Azeitão" cheese, the unique Portuguese charcuterie and savoury treats.
You'll be surrounded by original art works, paintings and sculptures.
You may consulte the library full of catalogues. But most important: Ask the host.
You'll meet one of the iconic art supporters of Portugal, who can tell you each and every story behind the works that you see.
Of course, you can always have wonderful Portuguese beverages:
WINES from Alentejo or Douro, GIN or CRAFT BEER ... coffee or tea.

José Escada (PT 1934-1980)
Pedrinhas e Ossinhos
signed/ dated 1974
oil on canvas
100 x 50 cm
Certainly one of TOP Portuguese artists ever. Between 1960 and 1971 he lived in Paris diving into abstraction, three-dimensional cut-outs and collages.
Joined one of the most important group of artists in the 60's in Paris, KWYGroup with other stunning artists: René Bértholo, Lourdes Castro, António Costa Pinheiro, Gonçalo Duarte, João Vieira, Christo andJan Voss.

Uwe Lindau (DE 1950)
signed/ dated 1989
mixed media on wood
168 x 262cm
1979 Karlsruhe's Art Academy under Markus Lüpertz. IWKA group in the 80's with Georg Schalla and Ralf Bühler which "saved the building" and led to ZKM Museum.
Lindau devours huge history books, plays piano dramatically, has an accurate humour and a deep critic sense of mankind violence capacity and it's hypocrisy such as the horrors of the Holocaust or the Inquisition.
He never leaves his studio:
-"THERE'S NO TIME - IHAVE TO REACT!!!" strongly over his boards on infinite layers.
Würth is one of his biggest collectors.
"I'm not painting according to the established rules, you'll have to say that I'm exploding - occasionally - like a volcano - sleeping a hundred years and then ...
I do not listen to music when I paint - the TV is rushing to me.
Leonardo inspires me... I love piloting battles, but also the desert". Uwe Lindau.
Julião Sarmento (PT 1948-2021)
The Awful Shapes of The Trees /
signed/ dated Cabriz 1994
acrylic on canvas
115 x 80 cm
One of the most internationally known Portuguese contemporary artists since the 80's. He began exhibiting film, video, sound, painting, sculpture, installation and multimedia in the early seventies, but also developed several site-specific projects. Represented Portugal at the Venice Biennial 1997.
1980 - 83 Studied Painting and Sculpture at AR.CO Art School in Lisbon under Graça Costa Cabral. In 1988 represented Portugal in the Iwate-Machi StoneSculpture Symposium - Japan, under Minoru NIIZUMA.
One of his biggest installations belongs to the Berardo Collection in Lisbon. Last solo show was Alquimia (Na Tasca), catalogue by Rajele Jain, Travessa da Ermida - Belém, Lisbon 2017.
Cardoso reflects the joy and drama(???) of SUBURBAN cultures of the Mega-Polis with it's common people.
Lately he focuses also on the lack of straight communication due to too much technology devices everywhere.
"We are reminded of the significance of companions, community, togetherness, bodies. This is also another aspect: the meaning of bodies in the communication process In today’s time of post- and trans-human concepts and virtual messengers." Rajele Jain.
