  Museum of Modern Art
by zuriga

Lisbon's Museum of Modern Art is surrounded by beautiful gardens and has one of the best cafeteria's I've been to in a long time. Thanks, Antonio, for introducing us to this lovely and interesting lunch! The collection is not huge, but it is a very short walk from the larger, Gulbenkian Museum which is also a must for visitors.

The museum houses contemporary and modern Portuguese art as well as an important collection of 20th century British art. Officially named Centro de Arte Moderna Jose de Azeredo Perdigão, it displays works by Amadeo Souza Cardoso, Almada Negreiros, and Paula Rego, Portugal's best known contemporary artist. There are also works by British artists such as David Hockney, Anthony Gormley, and Bill Woodrow, and a Henry Moore sculpture in the garden.
