Silva Palmeira who was born in Santarém in 1934, painter (awarded (Silver Medal Mérite et Dévouement Français, Paris,  1997),  ceramist and He is a sculptor, has been exhibiting since 1957 and is represented in several national and foreign collections. About his career, the painter said in the catalog text: "Travelling through spaces (...) , with deep landscapes, where the woman is the main theme, whose blue is the touch for an eminently planetary language, where poetry and philosophy are tonal musicalities  (...)". The woman, the his plastic and symbolic universe, therefore have a central place in his painting, in a figuration of well-defined shapes that the drawing highlights as well as the smooth and sweetly contrasting colors that equally present the his landscapes, in a proximity to poetics to which the writer Urbano Tavares Rodrigues was sensitive. In this serigraph on canvas, which was created like other works in the same vein, under the influence of Japanese erotic engraving, the stylization of the feminine, evocative of two cultures, from the West and the East, involves us in a atmosphere of sensuality and eroticism and at the same time a mysterious aura of beauty. Female seduction is It is represented in well-defined shapes that the drawing highlights and that interpenetrate in a wise visual game that accentuates the dynamism of the composition. Filled with smooth, sweetly contrasting colors, dotted with small, decorative flowers, with a place for the emblematic blue, the flow of gaze and dreams that cross time and shine in it for an instant, these figures are so characteristic of the universe The painter's plastic and poetic faces face us in the calm challenge of his gaze, in languid postures, and standing out against the background of the frame of a painting suggested in trompe l'oeil  that blurs the boundaries between reality and fiction, between life and art.
