Exhibition "The Rise of Islamic Art. 1869 — 1939"

12 July
 to 07 October

On the year of the 150th anniversary of Calouste Gulbenkian's birth, the Foundation takes a fresh look at the masterpieces of Oriental art from the Gulbenkian Collection - core of Islamic art - but also from other major international collections such as the Musée du Louvre, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Victoria & Albert Museum.

Displayed into five sections, the pieces of ceramics, glass, tapestry and painting bring the visitor to the interest and fascination of the collector and his contemporaries for Orientalism.
