About This Item

Lisbon, Livros Horizonte / Assembleia da República / Ministério da Cultura / Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal, 2010.. Folio (35.9 x 27 cm.), publisher's decorated cloth, with 10 x 7 cm. color illustration on paper tipped on to front cover. As new. 56 ll., vibrant color facsimile reproductions, table of contents of persons caricatures. *** Facsimile edition of this album by the famous illustrator Francisco de Paula Valença (Lisbon, 1882-1963), @Varões Assinalados (1909-1911). It contains 48 caricatures with biographies of important figures of the early twentieth century in Portugal including Miguel Bombarda, Guerra Junqueiro, Colombano Bordal Pinheiro, Ferreira do Amaral, Teófilo Braga, Afonso Costa, João Chagas, Manuel de Arriaga, Brito Camacho, José Relvas, Anselmo Braamcamp Freire, José Malhôa, and Viana da Mota. The humorous biographical pieces which accompany each caricature were written by André Brun (2), Gomes Leal, Carlos Simões (20), Alfredo de Mesquita (4), Albino Forjaz de Sampaio, Camara Lima (3), João Chagas, José Salazar, Mayer Garção (2), and others. Francisco Valença (1882–1962), was perhaps the most important twentieth–century Portuguese caricaturist. The article on Valença in the Grande enciclopédia portuguesa e brasileira (XXXIII, 880): states: “Durante toda a sua vida tem constantemente enriquecido com os seus desenhos não só inúmeras páginas da grande maioria dos jornais e revistas de Portugal, com também de França, de Espanha e do Brasil. É, tanto pela extensão da sua obra, como pela sua intenção artística e social, um dos maiores caricaturistas portugueses depois de Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro, com o qual tem grandes afinidades.…” *** See also Pamplona, Dicionário de pintores e escultores portugueses, [1987-88] V, 310.
