"Eyes are for Seeing"

Almada Negreiros

Sala de Exposições Temporárias | Temporary Exhibitions Room

During its 5th year of existence, Lugar do Desenho has good reason to be proud of the merit of the drawing exhibitions that have occupied its temporary exhibitions gallery.
After Lanhas, Júlio Pomar and Paula Rego, this space is now devoted to the great stimulator of Portuguese Art in the 20th Century: José de Almada Negreiros. Although we recognise that the tribute is small in view of the importance of the man, and his full dimension cannot be measured by the number of works on display, we have no doubt that no one ignores the national standing of Almada Negreiros.
This being the Lugar do Desenho, we would like to quote Almada Negreiros himself, who said one day: The eyes are for seeing and what the eyes see only drawing knows"...
We can only conclude that Almada is in the right place!
