In Portuguese museums there are several examples of Russian art, of Byzantine origin, the main centers being the legacy of Ana Maria Pereira da Gama, in the National Museum Grão Vasco (in Viseu), which comprises about two hundred pieces, and the Pedro Vieira da Fonseca legacy, from the Municipal Museum of the Condes de Castro Guimarães (in Cascais), which consists of seventeen icons.

The exhibition Sob o Manto de Nossa Senhora – Collections of Russian art in Portugal resulted from a partnership with the Fundação D. Luís I and is dedicated to the images of the Virgin Mary belonging to these collections. The calendar of the Russian Orthodox Church honors about 260 miraculous images of Our Lady, and in Russia there are around 860 different Marian iconographies.
