In the Imaginary Museum of Portuguese painting of the second half of the nineteenth century, Aurelia de Sousa is making a important presence.
The work of Aurelia de Sousa is a"silent narrative records of the house: the presence of the old mother, the work of women and children, (…) the country roads or river views. Makes a strong painting, rarely volumetric analysis detained in the shadows to capture the light in them "
