Serralves Museum, by Siza Vieira: Porto

 

I have been to Serralves (in Porto) so many times, and still, every single time I am there, I find that the architecture changes a little, and the setting is always somewhat different. It always surprises me. One would think that there is only so much that white walls can reflect or enhance, but it is not so: the colours of the leafs, the shades of green, the soft blues in the sky… it is always so different. This time, it was early morning and very cold, which sort of made the light reflect in intense ways: enhancing colours, subduing the whiteness, accentuating the sharp lines of the building and making it all somewhat ethereal. The exhibitions there were: one on Portuguese contemporary artists (pictures below) and the other on Miró. Here are some of the pictures I took that I love.
