Almada Negreiros and the Batalha Monastery fifteen primitive paintings in an imagined altarpiece in Lisbon
This can be seen in the Founder's Chapel, in the Monastery of Batalha the exhibition Almada Negreiros and in the Monastery of Batalha fifteen primitive paintings in an imagined altarpiece, which celebrates a bold and original idea by 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 Panels of St. Vincent. In this exhibition, in addition to the life-size reconstitution of the altarpiece he designed – an installation over ten meters high – Almada's works on display in the Chapel testify to his long and intense research process. Drawings, author notebooks, and even three-dimensional models made by Almada, can be seen, many of them for the first time.
