Silence in the Coffee Plantation: The Painting-poetics of Candido Portinari
Keywords:Candido Portinari, Visual Rhetoric, Poetry, Painting
AbstractThis article wants to analyze how Candido Portinari in his paintings with rural theme, engages a poetry of silence. To understand the functioning of this poetic language, we will adopt the Groupe Î¼ analysis method (both the General Rhetoric and the Treatise on the Visual Sign). Whereas the language is manifold as the forms of representation, and it present in all media, whatever the lack of speech - silence - would find its richest form in both directions through the metaphors and metonymy engaged in metasememes of the paintings studied.
