Museu Calouste Gulbenkian information
Famous for its outstanding quality and breadth, Museu Calouste Gulbenkian showcases an epic collection of Western and Eastern art – from Egyptian treasures to Old Master and Impressionist paintings.
The chronological romp kicks off with highlights such as gilded Egyptian mummy masks, Mesopotamian urns, elaborate Persian carpets and Qing porcelain (note the grinning Dogs of Fo ). Going west, art buffs bewonder masterpieces by Rembrandt (Portrait of an Old Man ), Van Dyck and Rubens (including the frantic Loves of the Centaurs ).
Be sure to glimpse Rodin’s passionate Spring Kiss . The grand finale is the collection of exquisite René Lalique jewellery, including the otherworldly Dragonfly .
