The museum is home to the private collection of Calouste Sarkis Gulbenkian (1869-1955) who amassed during the early 20th century, one of the world’s most important private art collections. Consisting of over six thousand works, of which around 1000 are on permanent display, this eclectic collection reflects Gulbenkian’s personal taste.
As mentioned in the previous post we’ve visited The Calouste Gulbenkian Museum and Garden. For a museum aficionado like me it was a very impressive place especially the modernist building itself set in a giant lush garden. They also had three Rembrandts.
