In 1964, Pop Art first appeared on the art scene at the Venice Biennale, with works by Robert Rauschenberg, Jim Dine and Claus Oldenberg. It was also in 1964 that Manuel de Brito opened Galeria 111 in Lisbon, focusing purely on contemporary art. De Brito’s passion for this new art form led him to acquire many works by the emerging Portuguese talent exhibiting at his gallery.

After 40 years of collecting, de Brito amassed a significant and respected collection. The municipality of Oeiras, near Lisbon, offered to refurbish the Palácio dos Anjos and house the collection. And now, 105 works, covering a period from 1914 to present, are on exhibit at the Center of Art Manuel de Brito.

Palácio dos Anjos features modern galleries housed in the original historic structure, as well as vast vast contemporary-design spaces built in the museum expansion. On the grounds is also an outdoor amphitheater and landscaped gardens.

The collection is considered to be one of the most important collections of Portuguese art of the twentieth century. Among the 300 pieces in the full collection are works from Paula Rego, Graça Morais, Luiz Eduardo, Menez, Palolo, Batarda Eduardo Costa Pinheiro, Antonio Dacosta, Júlio Pomar, among many others.
