Roses from Japan. Representations of Camellia in Portuguese Art


Coordination – Portuguese Camellia Association

This exhibition is the result of a proposal from the Portuguese Camélia Association, which has been generously contributing for some years to the maintenance of the centenary Jardim das Camélias at Palácio dos Carrancas, where the MNSR is located.

In this city where Camellias or Japanese trees, as they are often referred to, have such a strong presence, it has particular meaning to make this presentation of art objects and curiosities that intend to relate the collections of the MNSR and some individuals with the strong presence of the motif of camellia in art and culture in Portugal.
