A large collection of paintings, furniture, ceramics and reliquaries. I went to see the paintings and having spent 3 hours or so looking at them I only wanted to quickly browse the other collections. A couple of highlights were on loan (a Roger Van Der Weyden and Albrect Durer) which was a disappointment, but then had some art they had on loan themselves, like a couple of Goyas. There were a large presence of Flemish and Netherlandish artists and some Spanish and Italian. Bosch’s ‘the temptation of St Antony’ being the main attraction. The Portuguese collection wasn’t as big as I had expected, but it was still enjoyable to see artists from the nation that I had never come across before.
