An exhibit with 60 drawings from the 1960s from Portuguese artist Domingos Pinho is to open from 30 March to 8 May at Lugar do Desenho in Gondomar, a municipality east of Porto, the Júlio Resende Foundation announced earlier this week

In a statement, the foundation said that the content of the exhibit will allow visitors to “explore the paths that drawing has opened in modern and contemporary art, reflecting on its relationship with painting, debate its autonomy and witness all the derivations that its practice involves.”

Author of a work of “great intellectual sense” and a “profound connoisseur of the history of art”, Domingos Pinho “has worked in cycles recognisable for the coherence of his pretexts and his formal cohesion, aspects shown by the series of drawings.”

Pinho was born in Porto in 1937 and graduated in painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of Porto in 1963 where he became a teacher.

The foundation said that the exhibit “has a very particular meaning,” recalling that “there were many moments when the artist met with Júlio Resende.”

“His [Pinho] path is linked to the Faculty of Fine Arts of Porto, where he began to attend when Júlio Resend began his career as a teacher,” the statement read. TPN/Lusa
