Oil Painting Art – Michaeli

The application of the technique of oil in the painting of furniture has been known since the Persians, Greco-Roman period, extending through the Middle Ages. At the end of the XIV century and during the XV, the use of oil began to be generalized in the detriment of other techniques, since it allows for a slower drying, corrections and excellent chromatic stability. This technique was preferred by the artists of Flemish painting. Many important pieces of furniture and painting from the early Renaissance period were painted using the technique of oil on wood.

Embroidery from Madeira – Master Maria Abreu


Embroidery from Madeira is reflected in the refinement, the elegance, the purity of the lines, the movement of nature evident in the drawings, and the perfection of the work carried out by the skilled hands of the Madeiran women, who leave in each piece their personal stamp and the perfection of a work to which they spent about 40 hours. The drawings are made and then passed through a machine that will perforate the long vegetal paper of the whole drawing. Then follows printing on the paper with a sponge with a special blue paint that when passing in the small holes will mark in the fabric the areas that should be embroidered.
