This original Vieira da Silva print is from the scarce and lavishly-produced limited edition catalogue published in 1979 by the atelier Poligrafa of Barcelona, in conjunction with the prestigious Redfern Gallery of London. The project was done in homage to the earlier Redfern catalogues of the 1960's (which are now very rare) and with the same excellent technical quality.
