Portugal & Madeira news from Paul Abbiati:
Art Deco in Madeira
‘Martin everso’ prompted me to post this again today from his comments about this exhibition . Thanks Martin.
The Art Deco exhibition at Casa das Mudas above Calheta Marina has more than 300 pieces of furniture, paintings, statues, ceramics, glass and silverware and other decorative objects from some of the most famous Art Deco decorators like Lalique, Brandt, Perzel, Leleu, Porteneuve and Ruhlmann.
Art deco in Porto
Ruhlmann was the creator of the dining room in the Casa de Serralves in Porto, one of the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in Portugal.
“Casa de Serralves is a house and museum located in Parque de Serralves in Porto, Portugal.
Owned by the Serralves Foundation, the house was built by the second Conde de Prado, Carlos Alberto Cabral and designed by the architect José Marques da Silva. It is a unique example of Streamline Moderne architecture in Portugal.
