Palácio Anjos, one of the most distinctive buildings in Algés, has been exhibiting the Manuel de Brito collection, a representative sample of 20th-century art, since November 2006.
Galeria 111, one of Lisbon’s most prestigious art galleries, was founded by Manuel de Brito, who throughout his 40 years of activity there gradually put together a collection of pieces by the various artists that he exhibited, establishing close ties of friendship and cooperation with them. 105 works from this collection are now exhibited at Palácio Anjos, covering a period from 1914 to the present day. Besides two low-reliefs by Almada Negreiros, originating from the Cine San Carlos in Madrid, it is also possible to find works by Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso, Paula Rego, Júlio Pomar, Francis Smith, Eduardo Viana, Milly Possoz, Mário Eloy, Vieira da Silva, Carlos Botelho, Abel Manta, Julião Sarmento, Mário Cesariny and Joana Vasconcelos, amongst others.
The Art Centre also has rooms that can be used for workshops and an educational service designed to attract a younger audience. The building is set in the midst of a surrounding park that affords visitors some pleasant and relaxing moments of leisure.
