Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro is one of the most influential people of nineteenth century Portuguese culture, with a remarkable production particularly regarding the areas of humoristic drawing, caricature and ceramic creation. His work represents an unsettling, ever timely reality and a fundamental document for political, social, cultural and ideological study of a time period.
In 1884 Bordallo began his ceramics production at the Fábrica de Faianças in Caldas, revealing pieces of great technical, artistic and creative quality, developing azulejos (blue tiles), panels, pots, table centerpieces, vase busts, fountain basins, pitchers, plates, perfume bottles, vases and gigantic animals, etc.
His remarkable work with ceramics was awarded with the gold medal in international exhibitions (Madrid, Antwerp, Paris and in St. Louis, United States).
Each piece is lovingly crafted in contemporaneous adaptations of traditional Portuguese pottery techniques – making each piece not only an example of iconic design but also an element of a valuable cultural heritage of production.
Bordallo modelled, as well, characters based on the Portuguese everyday life with remarkable boldness and critical sense, and in his tiles he created patterns with diverse influences as vast as Renaissance, Naturalism, Art Nouveau and the Spanish and Arab legacy.
