9788466312738: Manual de Pintura y Caligrafía (Spanish Edition)

The last years of Salazar's dictatorship provide a backdrop for this novel. The story is told by H., a second-rate artist commissioned by a wealthy client, S., to paint a family portrait. As he works, he reflects on his struggles to survive in a bourgeois world. The struggles and compromises of the common man, the ethics of the intellectual, and the love of man are the ingredients that comprise this novel by José Saramago.

Description in Spanish: Pintor mediocre, dolorosamente consciente de sus limitaciones, H. recurre a las páginas de un diario como medio para comprender sus debilidades estéticas y para comprenderse a sí mismo, cuando acepta el encargo de retratar a S., administrador de una compañía. El trabajo le situará no tanto en la médula de la crisis moral del artista como en la raíz de todo acto de creación estética.
