Reina Sofia Museum - Pessoa: All Art Is a Form of Literature

Paulism, Intersectionism, Sensacionism are just some of the terms coined by Fernando Pessoa (Lisbon, 1888–1935) in his scores of texts, and underpin the idiosyncrasies of Portuguese modernity. This exhibition, therefore, draws on these isms to put in place a visual account of the Portuguese scene, bringing together a selection of works by figures such as José de Almada Negreiros, Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso, Eduardo Viana, Sarah Affonso and Júlio, among others, to focus on the first aesthetic currents in Portugal from the turn of the 20th century to 1935.
