Collection of contemporary neo-baroque tile-canvases by Adriana Verjão (b. Brazil). The artist innovatively ties images/themes/medium of the Baroque with the contemporary. In particular, Verjão uses the medium of the AZULEJO (a painted terracotta tile, part of an art form which was poplar in Portugal in the medieval period and especially the 17th and 18th centuries) in contemporary ways.
