The collections of Museu Nacional do Azulejo are extensive, not only on parietal applied ceramics, explicitly tiles, but also on ceramics from the 19th and 20th centuries, either from industrial production, or works of artists, from Portugal or other countries, rarely shown due to the lack of space in the galleries.
The selection of contemporary ceramics production exhibited at the cloister of floor 01 illustrate four international renowned authors, namely Betty Woodman, Cris Gustin, Barney Bartlet and Arnold Zimmerman.
Recent incorporations from temporary exhibitions are shown, such as Betty Woodman’s works from 1998 and 2004.
