Artist's Description

Acrylic on canvas
In the background I wrote her poem “I am…”

  • Featured in Everyday Woman Group, The Group 2, Portugal Group, Revealed Group and SKETCHING AND DRAWINGS group
  • Florbela Espanca ( Her real name is Flor Bela de Alma da Conceição) is one of the greatest Portuguese poets.
  • Forerunner of the feminist movement in Portugal, had a tumultuous life, restless, transforming their suffering intimate poetry of the highest quality, full of eroticism and femininity.
    Florbela was different than Portuguese women of her time in tastes, studies, work, behavior and relationships with men throughout her life. Florbela was aware of that difference, and it felt so proud and superior.
    The poetry of Florbela is characterized by recurring themes of suffering, loneliness, disillusionment, coupled with an immense tenderness and a desire for happiness and fulfillment that can only be achieved in the absolute infinity. The passionate vehemence of her language, remarkably personal, focused on her own frustrations and anxieties, is often an erotic sensuality.

She is the great woman in the early decades of the twentieth century Portuguese literature.

  • “I am
    I’m the one that in the world is lost,
    I am the one that in life has no north,
    I am the sister of the Dream and in this sort
    I am the crucified … the painful …

Shadow of fog thin and withered,
And that bitter fate sad and strong,
Spurs brutally to death!
Soul of mourning always misunderstood! …

I’m the one that goes by and nobody sees …
I am the one that they call sad, without being …
I am the one that cry without knowing why …

I am perhaps the vision that anyone dreamed,
Someone who came into the world to see me
And never in his life found me!"
Florbela Espanca
