Jorge Martins' artistic career (Lisbon, 1940) began in the 1960s. Always faithful to the practice of painting and drawing, his work reflects the experience and apprehension of the different contexts where he lived and worked, namely Paris and New York.
Published on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition of drawings by Jorge Martins presented simultaneously at the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art from March 15 to June 10, 2013 and at the Carmona e Costa Foundation from March 16 to May 18, 2013, this book documents a body of work carried out over more than five decades (1957─2012).
The essays by Manuel Castro Caldas, João Fernandes, José Gil, Sara Antónia Matos and António Mega Ferreira, together with the testimony of Pierre Georgel and extracts from the artist's graphic diaries, highlight the founding character of drawing in Martins' work.
