    CO-2219 Harnoncourt, René d'. [Carta] 1946 Mar. 11, New York, NY [para] Candido Portinari, Rio de Janeiro, RJ. [inglês][datilografado] Dear Portinari: I have not heard from you for years and have been waiting to see you and your Senhora appear in New York. Recently I heard of your emergence in the political arena and want to congratulate you on your election. A few days ago an American painter, Arthur Kaufmann, asked me for an introduction to you. Since he is going to Rio at the invitation of the Cultural Institute Brazil-United States, I gave him a short note to you but want to confess to you first that I do not personally know him or his work and that the introduction is just a matter of form and not of love or deep affection. Sarah joins me in very best regards to all the Portinaris and I very much hope to have a chance to see you in the not too distant future. Faithfully yours, René d’Harnoncourt 2
