Apartment Júlio Pomar
Who was Júlio Pomar
Júlio Artur da Silva Pomar (Lisbon, January 10, 1926 - Lisbon, May 22, 2018) was a Portuguese artist / painter. He belonged to the 3rd generation of Portuguese modernist painters, being the author of a multifaceted work, centered on painting, drawing, ceramics and printmaking, with important developments in the tridimensional fields (sculptures; assemblage) or writing. The first years of his career are linked to the resistance against the Estado Novo regime and to the affirmation of the neo-realist movement in Portugal. Júlio Pomar is consensually considered to be the most prominent of the national neorealists.
In Júlio Pomar the sequential diversity of the work is managed through a process of gradual metamorphosis in which "each stage recovers the previous one and announces the next one. Characterized by a type of figuration that crosses surrealism and the legacy of abstract expressionism, painting de Pomar over the past four decades has been approaching a wide variety of thematic universes, from self-referential reflection to eroticism, from portrait to literary allusions and mythological matter. And from a formal point of view we find an identical wealth of means and solutions. " Júlio Pomar builds successive chains of formal and semantic relationships between different materials, processes and techniques ".
Major exhibitions held in recent decades (Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation; Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art; Sintra Museum of Modern Art - Berardo Collection; museums in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasília; etc.) enshrined his work, which stands out as one of the most significant expressions of contemporary Portuguese artistic creation.
