Even though Jorge Colaço was a canvas painter and caricaturist, he specialised in designing and painting azulejo panels to decorate large surfaces. His designs had a late Romantic taste, celebrating the achievements of Portuguese history. Along with historical themes, he also produced ethnographic and landscape scenes.
Among his most important works are tile panels in the Palace Hotel of Bussaco (1907); São Bento railway station in Porto (1905–1916); Sports Pavilion of Eduardo VII Park in Lisbon (1922); façade of the Church of Saint Ildefonso in Porto (1932) and many others. He also has works in Brazil, England (Windsor Castle), Geneva (Centre William Rappard ) and other countries.
