We are particularly pleased to present to you the catalogue of our Auction 207.
A special live auction, dedicated to a remarkable Private Collection of Modern and Contemporary Art, which we have the privilege to reveal to you first hand.
Covering the period between the 1930s and today, restricted to around 140 works, practically all by Portuguese authors or by artists who have worked here, this collection is clearly embracing: most movements and main trends that marked painting in Portugal during that period are represented.
As a whole, and piece by piece, a coherent Collection at first glance, clearly revealing that it was carefully and systematically created over the years by the same hand, as indeed it was.
Above all, a demanding Collection with regard to the quality of the works it includes and to the importance of the Authors represented in it, whose complete list can be consulted in the respective index, in the last pages of this catalogue.
