Religious scenes on Dutch and Portuguese tiles – similarities and differences

January 20th, 2021 | 18h00 [UTC] | Zoom platform [session to be held in English]


This talk will look at the wide range of religious scenes shown on Dutch and Portuguese tiles and examine how biblical stories and events in the life of saints have been depicted by Dutch and Portuguese tile painters over the centuries. There will also be an exposition of how tiles with religious scenes were used for devotional practices by Portuguese Catholics and Dutch Protestants in private and public locations.
