Joaquim Rodrigo (1912-1997) paintings were exhibited for the first time in 1951. In 1957 his work was showed at São Paulo Biennale and one year latter at the Brussels World’s Fair.
It was in the 60’s that his work was marked by a decisive change which became closer to American Pop Art and a new emerging figuration in Europe. The artist began to attach great importance to the role of colour and to elaborate his own symbolic painting vocabulary based on personal memories transferred into the compositional field.
