Meet the artist Columbano Bordalo Pinheiro...


Columbano Bordalo Pinheiro was a Portuguese realist and naturalist painter.

He became the main painter of his generation and the master of realism in Portuguese painting, specializing in portraits.

After the proclamation of the Republic in Portugal, in 1910, he was a member of the commission that decided on the design of the new flag.

Columbano was captured with his tenebrism (chiaroscuro), which was so characteristic of him.

In the 1880s, he dedicated himself in the family to clear portraits of friends, which he later darkened into portraits of Portuguese intellectuals.


“We portray ourselves in everything we do! ... We spend our lives confessing... Don't you think so?” – Columbano Bordalo Pinheiro
