Palácio do Correio Velho  - Important Auction of Modern and Contemporary Art

Palácio do Correio Velho, leader of the Modern and Contemporary Art Auctions market, will be holding an important auction, comprising a relevant ensemble of works by great Portuguese and foreign artists. In an initiative by the auctioneer, the catalogue will be divided into decades, organizing chronologically the first years of the 21st century, and ending in the 1920’s.

The most striking nucleus of the auction is the 70’s decade of the 20th century, with reference works by some of the most respected artists of Portuguese Art and with a large number of works. The 50’s, 60’s, 80’s and 90’s are also noted by the high quality and rarity of the works presented.

The Exhibition will take place on 18th and 19th of December, from 15h00 to 19h00 and from 21h00 to 23h00.

The auction will be held on 20th December at 21h00, with around 266 lots.
