Artist: Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Created: 1916 Dimensions (cm): 58 x 70 Format: Oil, Canvas, Mixture and Varnish Location: Calouste Gulbenkian Museum Parto da Viola is a modernist piece by the Portuguese artist, Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso. Hailing from Amarante in northern Portugal, Amadeo is a somewhat lesser-known, albeit extraordinary, painter. He is also the first Portuguese artist to be featured by Curator Socks. At first glance, Parto da Viola may appear random and chaotic but upon further interpretation transmits imagination, emotion, and symbolism. It is a true delight for the senses, with its design delivering a sensory experience to the viewer.
