The Museum presents study on the Portuguese case of Limoges Enamels in Paris

14 de December, 2021

As part of the Paris sessions dedicated to medieval enamels, and co-organised by the Institut national d’histoire de l’art and the Louvre Museum, the Soares dos Reis National Museum presented a study on medieval artistic enamels from Limoges in Portugal. Ana Paula Machado, collection manager of the Soares dos Reis National Museum, shared studies with different international researchers on how these pieces were traded, preserved and became part of private collections scattered all over the country. Important examples of Limoges enamels were already part of late 19th and early 20th century museum collections.
