Passing of Professor José-Augusto França


It was with deep regret that Universidade NOVA de Lisboa received the news of the passing of José-Augusto França.

José-Augusto França is a major cultural figure in Portugal. He joined the faculty of Universidade NOVA de Lisboa shortly after the 25th of April 1974, becoming the main responsible for the institutionalization, and promotion, of teaching and research of History of Art in the country. In the framework of the History of Art Department, which he also created, he trained many generations of masters and doctorates. He leaves us a monumental historiographical legacy, open to dialogue and, as such, alive.

To the family and friends, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa presents its most heartfelt condolences.
