Maria Souto de Moura

I came across Maria Souto de Moura's art at Duas Portas Townhouse, a boutique guesthouse in Foz, Porto. I saw this beautiful painting next to my bed and wondered who might have done it. But the next day I forgot about asking from whom it was.

A bit more than one year later, I found out that the art pieces are by Maria Souto de Moura, another creative woman of the Duas Portas family. As written last year, the boutique guesthouse is run by Luisa, Maria's sister and their aunt Francisca. But it was Maria and Luisa's mother, Luisa Penha, who restored the 19th century house. As you can see, Duas Portas is a master piece of female creativity and dedication to architecture, design and arts.
