GONÇALO VIANA | LOVE BLOSSOMED & HAPPINESS RESTORED FOR VISTA ALEGRE
January 12, 2024 Gonçalo Viana
This last piece by #lcmartist Gonçalo Viana for Vista Alegre’s book celebrating their 200th anniversary is definitely a fun one. It tells the story of how artists at Vista Alegre once kept a drake in a cage as a source of artistic inspiration. The duck, however, was miserable and started losing all its feathers. It all seemed hopeless until, one day, one of the craftsmen brought a hen to the studio and, upon seeing each other, love blossomed between the two ducks and happiness was restored. Later, they decided to let them loose in the garden. What a wonderful story!
