Inaugural exhibition for São Paulo's cultural center. While there have been many exhibitions on Portinari (b. Brazil), this exhibition was conceived from a somewhat different standpoint, offering a more intimate view or the artist and his works The display of his art underscores the sentimental nature of his family links and and the human relationships that inspired a significant portion of his work. Outstanding among the works selected are important studies for large panels, rare illustrative drawings, and notoriously exponential paintings such as the "Girls of Arcozelo" which has not been displayed for over thirty years. ENGLISH AND PORTUGUESE TEXT. LIMITED EDITION OF 2500.
