Program Departing from the extensive collection of the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga, each participant will produce a series of studies and sketches based on some selected paintings, focusing the attention on the scenery, the figures with their specific characterizations and the gazes that cross the composition. The workshop will also deal in a progressive and intensive way with the multiple possibilities of oil painting, such as the duration of the act of painting, the overlapping with or without transparency of the several paint layers, etc. Exercises aim at promoting the experience of the participants’ integration in the most classical of pictorial traditions.
