|Ernesto de Sousa Poster Collection|
Ernesto de Sousa saw life as art and not art as a part of life. He encouraged others to break barriers and explore new languages, and became the crossover to the development of avant-garde ideas in Portugal, promoting the art of poster design within the country and promoting national artists in a global context.
There are around 1500 works in this collection of Posters used to promote exhibitions and cultural or political events, allowing an historical and sociological analysis of the events of the period and at the same time showing an evolution of the technical approach used by designers since the second half of the 20th century until the present day.
One of the largest private collections, spanning 500 years of what would become the most quintessential Portuguese art form.
This important collection of advertising artwork preserves a unique view of publicity in the early 20th century.
A fine collection of traditional 19th century ceramic art produced by some of the best ceramists from Caldas da Rainha such as Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro and Manuel Cipriano Gomes.
A still growing collection of over 400 pieces of beautiful and exemplary Art Deco furniture and interior decorative objects.
