The Golden Age of the Portuguese Renaissance - Exhibition catalogue
When the reign of Manuel I began in 1495, Lisbon, the capital of the kingdom of Portugal, was a multicultural city where wealth, new ideas and people from far away were flowing in. Within a refined court, artistic production echoed this opening to the world; the Lisbon workshops, supported by the royal commission, adopted a new way of painting, operating a very original synthesis between the pictorial inventions of the Flemish and Italian Renaissance and Portuguese culture.
This book is a tribute to the talent of the Portuguese painters of the first half of the 16th century and to this crucial moment in the history of European painting.
Exhibition « The Golden Age of the Portuguese Renaissance », at the musée du Louvre in partnership with the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga (Lisbon, Portugal) from 10 June to 10 October 2022.
