Almada Negreiros and the Batalha Monastery fifteen primitive paintings in an altarpiece imagined in Lisbon

The exhibition Almada Negreiros and the Batalha Monastery are exhibited in the Founder's Chapel, in the Batalha Monastery and in the Batalha Monastery, fifteen primitive paintings in an imagined altarpiece, which celebrates a daring and original idea of the Portuguese artist.

The fifteen works that make up the altarpiece that Almada Negreiro imagined include several primitive paintings (from the 15th and 16th centuries), namely the iconic S. Vicente Panels. In this exhibition, in addition to the natural-size reconstruction of the altarpiece that he created – an installation over ten meters high – Almada's works on display in the Chapel testify to his long and intense research process. Drawings, author's notebooks, and even three-dimensional models made by Almada, can be seen, many of them for the first time.
