Joe Berardo is one of Portugal’s most prolific collectors of fine art. His Berardo Collection Museum, exhibits a mere fraction of the massive portfolio, in addition to hosting numerous temporary exhibitions from around the world. Yet, finally, more works from Berardo’s private collection are on display in an exhibition curated by Berardo himself. The Collector’s Eye runs through 13 September 2015.



Many of the works in this show have never been exhibited publically. Indeed, many of the works may be less well known, but still they strike a particular emotion with Berardo, or may just be some his favorite pieces.  Of particular interest is a very large backdrop painted by Marc Chagall for Mozart’s Magic Flute.
