A Lifetime of Art - Júlio Resende - his gift to the world

The man has left us with a vast and remarkable ouvre, a generous gift of which we are thankful for.

"É Talvez o Último Dia da Minha Vida

É talvez o último dia da minha vida.
Saudei o sol, levantando a mão direita,
Mas não o saudei, dizendo-lhe adeus,
Fiz sinal de gostar de o ver antes: mais nada. "
- Alberto Caeiro

"And flights of angels take thee to thy rest "
