Roque Gameiro

"The real voyage of discovery consists, not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes."

Marcel Proust

Roque Gameiro, born in Minde in 1864, was one of the great portuguese watercolourists.
His penetrating eye could transpose the other, in a duality between soul and body, well patent in his self portrait.
With bucolic settings and natural landscapes we can´t help but feel a certain poetry in his draw.
It was exactly that penetrating eye that Ricardo Romero wanted to pay tribute to in Amadora, giving it a new context to his vision, taking us to simpler times with the laundresses in the river in a coordenated dance always followed by that look that lockes us in a bond.
