“An exemplary project: Exhibitions and book Sarah Affonso. The days of the little things. MNAC and Calouste Gulbenkian Museum ”

Referential artist of Portuguese Modernism, enveloped in a decisive aura by her decision to abandon painting to devote herself to her family, Sarah Affonso finally knows a work that celebrates and problematizes her peculiar path with great breadth. I will address what interested me most in the different studies presented in the book and which the exhibits confirm: the plastic energy of his portraiture cycle and the absolute originality of his popularly inspired painting. Between Paris and Minho, Sarah personally resumed the tracks of interest Amadeo de Souza Cardoso 20 years earlier.


Raquel Henriques da Silva is Professor of Art History at the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of the New University of Lisbon.

“My journey in the discovery of Sarah Affonso”

Following the reading proposal made by Professor Cristina Azevedo Tavares, Conversations with Sarah Affonso, we tried to get to know the woman and the artist better. Thus we went to the places where he lived, to better understand his written or narrated words to others, sources that are essential to us for the understanding and understanding of Sarah as a person, expressed in the individuality of her work.

"Quinta Lameirinha: the decanted place"

Quinta da Lameirinha is the chosen place of Sarah Afonso and Almada Negreiros. The place where they build their other home, the secluded studio, perhaps reminiscent of the rural Minho. Lameirinha is not a farm in the agrarian and urban sense of the term, but the space chosen for the productive rest that seems to be found there. It is a place that was not designed in advance, but which was successively built by various additions: the house, the porch, the fountain, the atelier, the orchard, the pond… Quinta da Lameirinha is a carefully constructed place, without a project to be built. know, as if slowly decanting the drives, needs, enchantments, that of the Site turned it into Place.
