Public Conversation and Book Launch
With Bernardo Pinto de Almeida (Full Professor at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto) and João Ribas Deputy Director of the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art)

Bernardo Pinto de Almeida presents a highly original and innovative vision of 20th century Portuguese Art History, with this luxurious work, filled with beautiful images (more than 500).
Breaking with many established ideas about leading artists such as Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso, and revealing the genius of almost forgotten names, Portugal’s most important contemporary art critic offers us an exceptionally rich and solidly grounded view of the Portuguese reception to the twentieth century’s artistic movements and their protagonists.
From now on this will serve as 'the' definitive History of Contemporary Portuguese art - an indispensable reference for artists, collectors, students and art lovers.

"With this rich collection of ideas, encyclopedic knowledge, refined observation, of artistic, philosophical and literary high culture, based on elaborate and original writing, rich in similarities and differences, the reader - aided by the complementary images - will be able to browse through the 'imaginary museum' designed by Bernardo Pinto de Almeida and choose the works that he would most like to take home, in order to place them in the small museum of his imagination” - cited from the preface by Manuel Villaverde Cabral.
