Lettres Portugaises.MATISSE, Henri, Marianna Alcaforado. Paris: Teriade, 1946. With 15 full-page and 80 smaller lithographs by Matisse. Bounded in a beautiful artistic binding of J.Anthoine Legrain 1949, complete of the matching chemise an box. A copy of Matisse's first collaboration with Teriade. At this time Matisse was also working on Jazz. Unlike the latter work, which was comprised of collages, Lettres Portugaises showcases Matisse's brilliance as a draughtsman. It is distinguished by the use of purple and brown inks, and by "the suavity of Matisse's line" (The Artist and the Book). This is one of only 80 copies accompanied by an extra set of proof studies of the lithographs. The total edition was 270 copies. Mariana Alcoforado (1640-1723) lived in Our Lady of the Conception Convent in Beja. Matisse leads us along the course of the passionate love affair of the nun from Beja, depicting the imaginary portraits of Mariana with delicate and at the same time tormented contours.
