    Max Römer was from Hamburg and disembarked in Funchal in 1922, where he lived until 1960. It was in a period before the great changes which in recent decades have radically transformed the island.

    Over 4 decades, Römer has transmitted to his paintings, drawings and watercolors, the Madeira customs and landscapes. Some examples are the book covers published in Funchal, especially in the 30s and 40s, Madeira promotional postcards found in private collections all over the world, posters for film sessions and commercials.

    Römer, who was perhaps the greatest marketer of Madeira, now comes as a testimony of an unrecoverable past.

    banner Funchal, the capital of the Madeira archipelago, was declared a city in the 1500s, and became an important point between the old and new worlds. The laid-back city owes much of its historical prominence to the white gold, the Madeiran sugar. Today Funchal is known for its appealing temperatures, wine and crafts. Top spots to visit include the open Worker's Market, Blandy's Wine Lodge and the Sacred Art Museum. Friendly locals, walkable streets and cheap taxis make the city easy to get around.
