Guided tour on the history of colours used by artists

6 de November, 2023

This guided tour in Portuguese of the long-term exhibition at the Soares dos Reis National Museum reveals some episodes in the troubled history of colours and the artists and craftsmen who produced and used them.


The visit offers new perspectives and ways of approaching painting. A connection is made between 16th to 19th century painting and the present day through colour and the materials used to produce it, both in art and in the clothes we wear every day.
