Segue um resumo do coquetel de abertura da nossa exposição coletiva de pinturas – aberta ao público até o dia 28 próximo, no Anexo IV da Câmara dos Deputados -, na forma de uma colagem de fotos: algumas tiradas por mim, outras gentilmente cedidas por Carmen Fraga, nobre colega expositora =)
A vernissage foi um sucesso e o espaço, incrível. Valeu a pena MESMO!

Opening this blog, I here re-publish a review originally posted on an old blog, now deactivated.
A Memorable Experience in Arts
Recently, in the year of 2002, the citizens of Brasilia (Brazil’s capital) had the opportunity to see, for the very first time in Brazil, an exhibition of Rembrandt Van Rijn’s etchings which compiled 83 works in total, of the Dutch-born artist (1603-1669).
The exhibition, entitled Rembrandt and The Art of Engraving (‘Rembrandt e A Arte da Gravura’) and performed at the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil in Brasilia and also São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Recife, was organised by the Netherlands’ Rembrandt House Museum (established in Amsterdam) and gave Brazilian public a unique experience to look at a careful selection of the artist’s most significant works in terms of etching techniques. Although being remembered mainly by his paintings nowadays, Rembrandt was also one of the greatest engravers of his time – a time when Engraving, as a form of art, was as much valued as Painting.
The etching selection demonstrated how Rembrandt did innovate the techniques of such craft, by emphasizing the use of pictorial effects more that line drawing itself, on his engravings. The exhibition included a vast aspect of the subjects striven by the artist, from landscapes and allegories to portraits and nudes.
The exhibition has also shown Rembrandt’s influence on other artists both from his time and from recent times. Alongside to his own selection, an additional show has compiled 40 works collected from several influenced artists like Picasso, among others.
To sum up, this event should be considered as one of the most remarkable Art happenings of the year of 2002, in my memories. It surely has brought, not only for me but for every spectator, an immensely vivid experience of gazing at a compilation of Rembrandt’s true innovative geniality in the art of Etching and Engraving, which remains as one of the major references in Art History, of all times.
