Juliao Sarmento (born 1948) is one of Portugal's most celebrated and internationally visible artists. Since the late 1960s, he has explored the principles of fragmentation and collage in a range of media (painting, drawing, sculpture, film and collage), using recurrent motifs and strategies such as silhouettes of headless female figures, torn photographs and fragments of text. The strongly allusive character of Sarmento's works often requires the viewer to do some interpretative work--as he puts it, "the subject is what is not there"--and modernist literary or philosophical references (ranging from James Joyce to Ludwig Wittgenstein) provide the conceptual underpinning for certain of his serial works. Over the course of his 45-year career, Sarmento has been included in two Documentas and has represented Portugal in three Venice Biennales; his work is held in the permanent collections of numerous museums worldwide. With color reproductions of some 660 works, this superbly produced seven-volume slipcased set offers a complete overview of Sarmento's various series of the 1990s.
