Catalogue Note

“I know of no greater tribute to the compelling sensuous loveliness of Portinari’s art than the annihilation of the reasoning and critical faculties of the mind which, I believe, all undergo on seeing it. Color, and all that that in terms of harmony and dissonance and light and dark involves, is there; and all that light and shade and color make: a world of living beings… The world of Portinari: as compelled by it, in thought, we move about in it, with wonder…”

Rockwell Kent, Portinari: His Life and Art, Chicago, 1940, p. 7
