International Year of Peace
The United Nations designated 1986 International Year of Peace. One of the posters issued on this occasion is the work of Maria Helena Vieira da Silva. Born in Lisbon (Portugal) in 1908, her original form of expression dislocates perspective and ushers in a new representation of space. She “invents” a “pictorial locus”, capturing reality in its mobility and metamorphoses, through duration and memory. Her influence and her authority are unanimously acclaimed.
