Óleo 112 X 85 ano 1964 de Luís Dourdil Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporânea do chiado
The National Museum of Contemporary Art in Chiado opened in 1911 in a former convent and was completely refurbished in 1994, when Lisbon was the European Capital of Culture.
It holds nearly 5,000 works by Portuguese artists from 1850 to the present (and some French sculpture from the late 1800s), but most are from before 1950. The collection is mostly painting, but also includes sculpture, photography, sketches, prints and installations.
All the big names of modern and contemporary art in Portugal are represented, from #AlmadaNegreiros to #AmadeodeSouzaCardoso, #ColumbanoBordaloPinheiro, #JúlioPomar ,#LuisDourdil #MarioCesariny and #PaulaRego.
The space, which has kept some features from its past (like the old ovens), was expanded in 2015, making it possible to show works from 1960 to 1990.
