Júlio Pomar (1926-2018) was often considered the greatest Portuguese painter of his generation.
O corpo, a sexualidade e o erótico na obra de Júlio Pomar / The body, sexuality and the erotic in the work of Júlio Pomar. (2019), establishes free correspondences between the painter’s writings and his pictorial work focusing primarily on his explorations and concerns around the body, sexuality and the erotic.
In his moments of despair, he declares that drawing does not exist and that only geometrical figures can be made with lines; (...) drawing furnishes a skeleton, color gives life; but life without the skeleton is much less complete than the skeleton without life. Honoré de Balzac, Le Chef-d’oeuvre inconnu.
