The 500 Drawings of Silva Porto of the SNBA Collection

An unprecedented exhibition in which Silva Porto (1850-1893), the pioneer of naturalism / impressionism in Portugal, has more than 500 drawings from the SNBA collection on display, mostly for the first time. This is the unprecedented collection that the Artistic Guild (SNBA's predecessor) acquired from Silva Porto's widow in 1893. This exhibition has a large catalogue based on Sara Beirão's master's thesis (inventory) and is curated by João Paulo Queiroz (SNBA, FBAUL, CIEBA), reproducing all drawings.

Schedule: Monday to Friday from 12h00 to 19h00 and Saturday from 14h to 19h
