Furniture Collection

«The furniture collection has, predominantly, pieces acquired in Portugal and, a reduced number, brought from National Museums. (…) Constrained by the sector supply and by the budgetary allowance, the purchases led by the [Furniture] Commission reflect the Portuguese art market and the prevailing taste at the time, as well as the options previously delineated in other projects. Under the circumstances, the chosen option reflects an attempt to recover a National aesthetic language that the Estado Novo fostered both in the field of decorative arts as well as in visual arts. (…) [There are Portuguese pieces of furniture of several time frames], complemented by Italian, Spanish and Dutch pieces, thus conferring a “Portuguese ethos” to the ambiance. The acquisitions included original pieces, 19th century ones (…) and even pieces from the 20th century (…). To evoke the Portuguese presence in the East, there are also several types of pieces.».
