Soares dos Reis National Museum takes the Blue and Gold exhibition to the Machado de Castro National Museum

19 de November, 2021

The Soares dos Reis National Museum’s itinerant exhibition, Blue and Gold. Enamels in Portugal from Medieval to Modern Times opened at the Machado de Castro National Museum, in Coimbra, on 19th November. Dedicated to artistic enamel work, the exhibition brought pieces produced between the 12th and 19th centuries together, and compared the various techniques used in liturgical, devotional and ceremonial objects. The 26 plaques from the Monastery of Santa Cruz, in Coimbra, had a particularly important role, expressing true complicity between materials, techniques and a plasticity deriving from the creative force of the 16th century.

Patent until February 27, 2022, from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10:00 to 17:30.
