MU.SA - Sintra's Arts Museum


MU.SA Collection

Emílio de Paula Campos Collection (1884-1943)

Emilio Paula Campos-2

A teacher by profession and a sculptor, watercolorist and art collector at heart, Emílio de Paula Campos got his artistic training at the António Arroio School in Lisbon. In 1973 his artistic legacy was assembled by his nephew, architect Francisco Castro Rodrigues (1920), and offered to the Municipality of Sintra. Initially shown at the old Regional Museum of Sintra, this collection will now occupy a prominent place in MU.SA.

Dorita Castel-Branco Collection (1936-1996)

Dorita Castel-Branco

Sculptress Dórita Castel-Branco graduated from the Faculty of Fine arts in Lisbon. Represented in national and international collections, her work is divided between the figurative and the abstract, encompassing such diverse materials as poliminium, marble, polyester and bronze. She distinguished herself in sculpture, drawing and medal-making, an area in which she has won numerous awards, in Portugal as well as abroad. As a tribute to her, the Municipality of Sintra has instituted the Dórita Castel-Branco Contemporary Medal Award.
