  • Transcrição: CO-900 Boston Book and Art Shop. [Carta] 1954 Jan. 28, Boston, MA [para] Candido Portinari, Rio de Janeiro, RJ. [inglês][datilografado] Dear Mr. Portinari : By chance Dr. Paulo Barros, who perhaps will be able to tell you more about me personally than I could in all modesty write you, has been an admirer of your work for the longest time. In fact, I treasure a monograph on you which was published a number of years ago in this country, and prize it, since I do not have any example of your original work. I am a bookseller, especially in books on fine and applied arts, and deal in prints. My specialty is Japanese prints, and I have a very fine collection; also have published a book on Japanese prints. This letter is more in the nature of making myself known to you. I would like some day to own one of your paintings, and am wondering whether we could exchange one for art books or Japanese prints. I know I could never afford one of your paintings, but I do have, as Dr. Barros will tell you, one of the best selections of art books in the world. I should be very pleased to hear from you. Cordially yours, [ilegível] 2
