Lécio Leal deposited Tem o Céu Santos. O tecto em caixotões da igreja de Nossa Senhora dos Réis de Lamalonga. on Humanities Commons 4 years, 8 months ago
The coffered ceiling of Nossa Senhora dos Réis de Lamalonga church is one of the largest and most important nucleus of painting in the northeastern region of Portugal. Given the ambitious programme of interceding saints it appears that the work was largelly triggered by the human tragedy in Lisbon earthquake of 1 November 1755. Joaquim Manuel da Rocha, an emerging painter from Lisbon in the mid 60’s, and Domingos Teixeira Barreto, one of the most important artist from Porto until the end of the century, were the chosen to carry out the project.
