    • 2. José Sobral de Almada-Negreiros was a Portuguese painter and writer, born in the then colony of São Tomé e Príncipe. Besides literature and painting, Almada composed ballet choreographies, and worked on tapestry, engraving, murals, caricature, mosaic, azulejo and stained glass. Having drawn inspiration from Cubism and Futurist movements, AlmadaNegreiros is considered one of the pivotal figures of the Modernist movement in Portugal. Following the lead of other European vanguard movements of the early 20th century, Almada-Negreiros, along with writers Fernando Pessoa, Mário de Sá-Carneiro and painters such as Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso and Santa Rita Pintor, formed a group named "Orpheu’s generation". Intent on agitating, subverting and scandalizing the Portuguese conservative bourgeoisie and, by extension, all social conventions, the group launched a magazine – "Orpheu" – a journal of art and literature. Essentially, their aim was to produce a shift in the society’s mind frame, urging people to look to the future and to believe in their Man’s capacities. Between the years of 1918-20 Almada-Negreiros lived in Paris, working as a dancer and as a factory worker to earn a living. Although he led a relatively isolated life, he established acquaintance with some of the most prominent artists of 20th century modern art
