Biography

Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso was born in Manhufe (Amarante) and died in Espinho, north of Portugal. In 1906, he left for Paris where he began working as a draughtsman and caricaturist. He got acquainted with Modigliani, Brancusi, Juan Gris, Max Jacob, Sónia and Robert Delaunay, among others. In 1913 he integrated the famous exhibition Armory Show in New York and exhibited as well Galeria Der Sturm in Berlin. With the eruption of the first world war he returned to Portugal. Between 1915 and 1916 he became friend with the Sonia and Robert Delaunay who came to live in Portugal, and by then he got near the group of the Orfeo and of Almada Negreiros. During this period he exhibited in Lisbon and Oporto. A sua obra, do cubismo ao dadaísmo, furismo, abstracção e expressionismo, foi um campo de experimentação para a compreensão das diferentes correntes. His work was a field of experiment of the different movements, from cubism, to dadaism, futurism, abstraction and expressionism. In a very short period of time, Amadeo was the artist who presented the most serious proposals of modern art in Portugal.
