Arte Portuguesa Século XX Art Series
A reference book for artists, collectors and art history lovers presented in an American walnut wood box that simultaneously acts as a frame for two serigraphs. Art and literature merge as never before in this exclusive, unique, and unrepeatable piece, limited to 200 numbered copies signed by the author. Numbers 1 to 100 include serigraphs by Alberto Carneiro and Manuel Casimiro; and numbers 101 to 200 contain works by Miguel Branco and Albuquerque Mendes. This luxury work, illustrated with over 500 images, opens the "Art Series" edition of Coral Books, renowned for its books that simultaneously become artistic objects of great elegance and exuberance. Bernardo Pinto de Almeida, today's most renowned art critic, sets out a panoramic view of 20th century artistic conceptions, breaking with the canons and revealing the forgotten names of national culture. In the words of journalist and writer Valdemar Cruz: "This is a story of ruptures with art inside". The copies available at Livraria Lello are numbers 6 and 8, out of 200.
