A set of 7 copper engravings printed on 250g BFK Ribes paper. Printed by Tomás Augusto de Sousa Dias in October 1997. Edition of 50 copies numbered from 1/50 to 50/50 and 5 proof author’s copies numbered from I/V to V/V. The multiple is recognised as an invaluable means of disseminating a work of art, maybe the most legitimate for its author, and without doubt the most accessible to the public. In fulfilling a purpose that has always been one of the aims of this institution, I am pleased to present the first collection of engravings signed by prestigious names who are, in the circumstances, early companions in the life of Lugar do Desenho. Their selfless willingness and the courtesy of Moldursant in offering the paper are attitudes that do not allow me to let my acknowledgement go unexpressed.
