Work dedicated to the Weale Album and the exhibition "From Rome to Lisbon: An album for the magnanimous king". Conceived around the so-called Weale Album – a volume made up of a set of drawings, made in Rome in the 18th century, to inform the king of the progress of his orders for works of art – the exhibition, installed at the São Roque Museum, in the Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa (SCML), is built around the key idea that is the journey between Rome and Lisbon in the reign of D. João V, understood as a process of cultural and artistic exchange and seeking to recognize what actually traveled : words, drawings, works of art. Two hundred years after its loss, the Weale Album returns to Lisbon thanks to the sponsorship of its restoration, presentation and study by SCML, as part of a partnership with the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts in Paris, in whose library it is currently preserved. . The book De Roma para Lisboa presents the album and the exhibition through studies by national and international specialists, analyzing its trajectory and framing it in the historical context of the Johannine commissions.
Visit the magnificent Chapel of São João Baptista, in the Church of São Roque and discover the commission behind this great work.
