pjimage 2022 02 16T075022.834SLCM – Serra Lopes, Cortes Martins & Associados has advised the painter Paula Rego on the recent acquisition process by the Gulbenkian Foundation, of two works by the prestigious Portuguese artist.

The purchase and sale operation, led by Dário Moura Vicente (pictured left), coordinator of the Intellectual Property, Advertising & Information area at SLCM, and which included senior associate Ana Sofia Simões (pictured right), involved the iconic painting O Anjo (1998), emblematic work of the painter born in Lisbon in 1935, and yet another important painting by Paula Rego, entitled The Turkish Bath (1960).

Luís Cortes Martins, managing partner of SLCM said: “Our firm has maintained a fruitful professional collaboration with the painter Paula Rego and it was an enormous privilege to be able to advise one of the most prestigious and influential Portuguese artists, throughout this process. They are two outstanding works from the artistic collection of Paula Rego, their acquisition by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation represents excellent news for Portuguese Culture and Contemporary Art.”
