Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso: A Surprising #1913ArmoryShow Success
Portugese-born painter Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso (1887-1918) was one of the most commercially successful artists at the Armory Show, selling seven of the eight works he lent to the exhibition. Although he had participated in avant-garde exhibits abroad, the Armory Show marked his American debut – a major milestone in his tragically short career.
