18th century Portuguese tile panel representing "Holy Family", blue on white mounted in a wooden frame.
Originally belonged to a famous Portuguese actor/historian - Prof. José Hermano Saraiva and was embedded on to the wall of his home library.
The monochromatic blue painting is influenced from the famous Ming porcelain produced by the Chinese centuries before and brought into Europe as a highly sought-after luxury item. Delft ceramics started this trend in late 17th century and it became the fashion in Portuguese tiles during most of the 18th century.
Tiles panels can be wooden framed as a painting or embedded directly on to the wall. Usually displayed in the living room or dining room, interior or external gardens, balconies, etc.
