press release

Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso is a multifaceted artist whose work lies at the crossroads of all the artistic movements of the twentieth century. Beyond Impressionist, Fauvist, Cubist and Futurist influences, he refused labels and made up an art form of his own, between tradition and modernity, between Portugal and Paris. One hundred and fifty works by Amadeo and his close friends Modigliani, Brancusi and the Delaunay couple are brought together in this exhibition, which is the first major retrospective devoted to the Portuguese artist since 1958.

Exhibition organised by Réunion des Musées Nationaux – Grand Palais and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
