    M. Helena Vieira da Silva – (Portugal 1908 – Francia 1992) was one of the most important European painters in the second half of the twentieth century.
  • She studied drawing and painting at an early age. Travel through Europe and living in Paris, where he first studied sculpture and later painting with Dufresne, Waroquier and Friesz, among others. Make designs for textiles and tapestries.
    She is distinguished with awards and recognitions. His work is part of the principals museums in the world.
  • (…) In his paintings we find very specific areas in which each plot hide a mystery of the infinite. Borders, borders everywhere define borders that not define anything, they do not prevent any transgression " Michel Seuphor.

“*A painting must have a heart, nervous system, bones, circulation. It should resemble a moving person. It is necessary that whoever looks at it, be faced with a company that will make him tell stories, give you certainties because a painting, is not a escape, must be a friend who speaks, who discovers the riches that lie in us and in our return.* " Vieira da Silva

    Madalena how very interesting you write and explain and how wonderful you paint. I am so very much d’accord with what Vieira da Silva states about what a painting must have, a heart
    …..and has to discover the riches that lie in us and in our return. Wonderful wonderful…..thank you for bringing these wise quite back to people’s mind with your writing and painting. Ruth

    Thanks for your continued support of my paintings and translations.

    For sometimes we forget the contribution of women artists who are no longer alive. If today the world is much more easier for women artists we owe largely to women artists who gave us the road.
    With my series " Women of April Country – Mujeres del pais de Abril" I wanted to pay tribute to these women.
