Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso (1887-1918) was a Portuguese artist. In 1906, he left for Paris where he began working as a draftsman and caricaturist. He became acquainted with front running artists such as Modigliani and Max Jacob among others. In 1913, his work was exhibited in the famous exhibitions Armory Show in New York and Galeria Der Sturm, in Berlin. Amadeo was among the most commercially successful exhibitors at the Armory Show, as he sold seven of the eight works he showed.
Even considering his very short life span, Souza-Cardoso was an artist who left an indelible milestone on the history of modern art in Portugal, thanks to his committed and prolific activity, as well as his embrace of fresh ideas and becoming inspired by many of the leading art movements of his time.
