Pink It Is

Portuguese Pink

Art Nouveau facade, former Cooperativa Agrícola, 1913 Aveiro, Portugal

Aveiro’s Art Nouveau movement in the early 20th century adopted and adapted the Portuguese use and production of tiles, decorating them with sinuous floral  and plant-inspired motifs and other natural elements. Facade decorations using tiles, wrought iron, and stonework were often the only Art Nouveau elements used. Aveiro’s Art Nouveau buildings were mainly residential,  The ornate facades were all about showing of economic wealth and influence of the owners, many of whom were returning emigres from Brazil. Construction and interior decoration generally followed more traditional, conservative design. Located along the Rossio waterfront in Aveiro, the façade of the former Cooperativa Agrícola is embellished with hand-painted tiles representing lilies set against a pink background. The  hand-painted tiles were produced  locally in the Fonte Nova Factory in 1913 and are attributed to Licínio Pinto, a celebrated local artist.
