MUSEUM ENVIRONMENTS

Casa de Portinari Museum’s artistic collection is mainly composed of works done by the artist in mural paintings on the house walls in the fresco and tempera techniques. The theme is predominantly sacred, with the exception of the artist’s early experiences in this type of art. The collection also includes a set of drawings, an expressive and significant language in Candido Portinari’s production present in all moments of his career.

The museum also keeps the family’s personal-use objects, furniture and utensils and some rooms continue with their original functions, while others were adapted to be used as exhibition rooms.
