First Drawings - Set of 2 Notebooks | Sarah Affonso

Add to wishlist

A Vida Portuguesa celebrates Sarah Affonso (1899-1983), a great artist who was a Modernist painter and wondrous embroiderer, an independent woman married to José de Almada Negreiros, and a dedicated and creative mother all at once.

At the request of her granddaughters, Rita and Catarina, and based on the family’s assets, we rediscovered Sarah’s work, and drew inspiration from it to come up with toys, notebooks, books, jewellery and household objects that recreate her world.

This special collection of objects inspired by Sarah Affonso’s life and work was created to celebrate the 120th anniversary of her birth and the two great exhibitions of her oeuvre in Lisbon at the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum and at the National Museum of Contemporary Art of Chiado, in 2019.

The ivy featured in the pattern of these covers is considered to be one of Sarah’s first drawings at the age of 11.
