A DEGA - Art Gallery
Welcome To Our Home Page!
A DEGA was set up in the building of an old cellar of the Cister Nuns Convent of Cós, near Alcobaça (in a historic region, 120Km north Lisbon).
The building was bougt by the grandfather of the Gallery's ownwer, Maria Helena Barros.
We had exhibitions of national and foreign painters, within a varied range of contemporary artisitc lines. One of them has been New Figuration, namely ironic painting. We have not a rigid view concerning artistic styles. Expressionist and abstract painters have shown here as well.
You can see on the right a "New Figuration" painting that won the Leonardo da Vinci Prize, given in Florence and was shown in our Gallery. The critics said that this painting is surrealist.That may be, but the intention of the Author was to show a critical view of reality.
