Provenances

Starting date: 2014
To a great extent, the public and private azulejo collections assembled since the second half of the 20th century result from the decontextualisation of azulejo heritage, that is, from the transformation of decorative panels into loose "objects". This process, having promoted the circulation of these objects, has contributed to efface the memory of the azulejos' original locations.
