Reasons for trip

I visited the Berardo Museum in the Belem area during a trip to Lisbon last month. It is a fascinating collection of modern art – some of which I must admit that I found difficult to understand, being more of a fan of more ‘conventional’ art. However, I must say that it is a very eclectic and comprehensive collection, comprising works of art by many of the most famous and renowned modern artists such as Picasso, Mondrian, Andy Warhol, Hockney, Dali, Jackson Pollock and others, some of whom I had heard of but most of whom I hadn’t, but as I say I am not an afficionado of modern art.

The gallery is on several levels, each covering a different genre and art movement. It is housed in a modern building in Belem, surrounded by attractive, modern, minimalistic gardens. Belem is easily reached by bus or tram and is an attractive area with many restaurants, cafes and attractions, including the Tower of Belem and the monument to the Portuguese explorers (Padrão dos Descobrimentos) situated at the waterside.

I would recommend the gallery to lovers of modern art although I would not necessarily visit it again myself. However, it was a worthwhile and educational experience and definitely worth seeing. However I would definitely recommend a visit to the Belem area of Lisbon.
