Nazaré. Memories of Abílio
April 1 is the anniversary of the birth of Abílio de Mattos e Silva. The Abílio Museum, in Óbidos, and the Dr. Joaquim Manso Museum, in Nazaré, came together to mark his birthday, making the launch of an online exhibition dedicated to the artist, with works from both museums, with Nazaré as the main theme.
According to the curators of this initiative, “throughout his life, Abílio de Mattos e Silva felt a strong connection to Nazaré and Óbidos, two extremely important milestones in his cultural and artistic life and which he once called home. Totally conceived for a virtual presentation, this exhibition can be accessed through the Google Sites platform, with the selection criteria for the works centered on the 'people, spaces and everyday life of Nazaré'. Through the exhibited works, we can observe the customs, costumes, experiences, popular architecture, among other aspects of the fishing village of Nazaré in the middle of the 20th century, through the eyes of Abílio ”.
