The Manueline: Portuguese Art during the Great Discoveries reveals the splendours of an era that brought Portugal into the Modern Age. Against the backdrop of fruitful maritime exploration, King Manuel I and the Church launched a golden era of artistic patronage without precedent in the Portuguese kingdom. Broadly spanning the period between 1490 and 1540, the Manueline combined the Portuguese Late Gothic style with an ornamental grammar featuring fantastical maritime motifs and influenced by Mudejar and other styles, and achieved a unique architectural symbiosis that was perfectly emblematic of the country and of the monarch after which it was later named. The MWNF Travel Books convey the local perspective of history, art and cultural heritage. Through its 14 Itineraries, The Manueline: Portuguese Art during the Great Discoveries invites the reader to discover 182 museums, monuments and sites in 60 locations across Portugal. The title is available in English, in two editions, paperback and eBook. 339 colour illustrations, 368 pages.
