Eye to eye - Temporary exhibition at Museu Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisboa - The 26th of July 2015

Having been exhausted from the hard week's work and rather than strolling out in the extreme heat I decided to go to a temporary exhibition entitled "Eye to eye" at  the Museum Calouste Gulbenkian. Despite having already seen most of the paintings being exhibited once they pertain to the Museum's collection I felt it was rather interesting having had them put together.
