Almada Negreiros

April 7, 1893 (Trinidad, São Tomé e Príncipe) – June 15, 1970 (Lisbon, Portugal).

José Sobral de Almada Negreiros was a multidisciplinar artist: besides literature and painting, Almada composed ballet choreographies, and worked on tapestry, engraving, murals, caricature, mosaic, azulejo and stained glass. Having drawn inspiration from Cubism and Futurist movements, Almada-Negreiros is considered one of the pivotal figures of the Modernist movement in Portugal. He is imagined here as a man who unfolds in multiple facets, perspectives, as a man who never ends.
