About

This abstract painting depicts a figure turned upside down that remains us someone riding a horse or a Napoleon knight. The thick black and white brushstrokes contrasting with the intense orange background gives to the artwork an undeniable intensity and strength. Signed lower right corner and dated, “Vieira (19)86”. João Rodrigues Vieira is born in 1934 in Vidago city, Portugal. He comes to Lisbon to study painting in the Belas Artes de Lisboa school. Not happy with the teaching methods there, returns to his hometown, to only coming back a few years later, in 1956, to start showing his work. Goes to Paris where he meets other Portuguese artists such as Lourdes Castro, René Bertholo, José Escada. In 1959 he shows his work solo in Diário de Notícias (famous Portuguese newspaper), and in the same year, he receives Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation’s scholarship, which leads him to Paris again, to work with the famous Arpad Scenes (Vieira da Silva’s husband). He represents Portugal in the 39th Bienal of Venice and, in 2009 (the year he died), receives the Amadeo de Souza Cardoso award. Works by him can be seen in various museums, and also in Terreiro do Paço metro station in Lisbon and in Vial Real Cathedral’s stained glass.
