Museu Bordalo Pinheiro

The first Museum in Portugal to be built from scratch to household the work of an artist, opened to the public in 1916 by the hand of the collector Cruz de Magalhães, great admirer of Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro.

The house next to Campo Grande garden, was awarded the honorary mention of the Valmor Prize (architecture). Here we can find the artist works of ceramics, decoration, design, humor drawing, comics and illustration, with a special attention to the figure of Zé Povinho a national stereotype.
Donated to Lisbon City Council in 1924, the Museum was reopened in 2005 with a permanent exhibition, a specialized library and a Temporary Exhibition Gallery, where works by contemporary artists related to the work of Bordalo Pinheiro are shown.
