Luisa Cortesão


I work hard to blog here every day and to facilitate this I try to stick to a theme for a few days or a week to help with the flow and continuity of the page. However, I am interrupting this current theme of Czech illustration because I just watched an inspiring film from Portugal and at the end was bereft, as I found out Luisa Cortesão (1951-2016) the vibrant narrator and protagonist had passed away in January. So here is the film and some examples of this enigmatic ladies work.


Luisa had spent her life working in endocrinology retiring when she was 59. She was married to an art critic Alexandre Pomar the son of the painter Júlio Pomar and they had two daughters.
