Forty of the politicians, intelligentsia, sportsmen and women, musicians and poets to have been on the receiving end of the artist Cássio Loredano’s deft penmanship go on display in Centro following a huge sale of his original works by Paulo Fernando’s downtown gallery. Dating from 1970 to the present day, the collection displays the wonderful imagination and depth of thought at work in Loredano’s drawings for the likes of Brazilian broadsheets Jornal do Brasil, Estadão and Spain’s El Pais. Beyond caricature and more physical than satirical, the unnerving ability to capture his subject fuelled the rapid sale of the work, many to the vevry person represented on the canvas.

Born in Rio in the middle of the last century, Loredano started out as a journalist, reporter and newsreader in São Paulo before moving to Europe where his illustrations were published in major German newspapers in Bonn, Munich and Frankfurt, and latterly in Spain, Italy and France. A prize-winning book, ‘Loredano Caricatures’ was released in Brazil in 1994, and at the age of 65 he continues to produce his startlingly refined images for the likes of Veja magazine.

Among his better-known targets have been the likes of President Dilma Rousseff and Che Gavara, as well as less contemporary figures including Charlie Chaplin, Alfred Hitchcock and Machado de Assis, the focus always on the individual’s public persona rather than their politics. All told, the collection is a wonderful way to absorb some of the public eye’s more absorbing characters from the last half a century.
