BMAD - Berardo Museu Arte Deco
Museums and Palaces
B-MAD, Berardo - Museum Art Deco is located in the heart of the city of Lisbon, in the former summer residence of the Marquis of Abrantes, in Alcântara, which had as its first permanent residence in the Palace of Santos, currently the French Embassy in Lisbon.
In this space, several works from the Berardo Collection can be admired, which illustrate the Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco movements. In an effort to preserve the building, environments were created in a period setting, giving the visitor the possibility to admire the styles in a city residential context. Contemporary musealization has brought to light the works and their illustrious creators, expertly represented in the Collection, such as Jacques-Émile Ruhlmann, Alfred Porteneuve, Jean-Michel Frank, Jacques Adnet, René Lalique and Jules Leleu. The Portuguese presence is felt by the renowned sculptor Ernesto Canto da Maya and by the plastic artist Eloy de Jesus Pereira, together with Ruhlmann's original drawings for the Casa de Serralves and part of the collection of silverware drawings from the Former Ourivesaria Reis e Filhos, in a tribute to Porto.
This new cultural centre also features a reception and shop space connecting to a secret garden with terrace, idealized in the Deco grammar. In this space, visitors will be able to enjoy an exclusive range of Bacalhôa Vinhos de Portugal products, surrounded by the masters, music and aura of the “Roaring 20’s”.
Open every day, from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., except 25th December and 1st January.
