The greatest Portuguese painter of the 19th century, he as been compared to the likes of Wilhelm Leibl and Thomas Eakins. Columbano was the son of a mediocre romantic painter, Manuel Maria Bordalo Pinheiro, and the younger brother of the great caricaturist, Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro. He became the leading painter of his generation and the master of realism in Portuguese painting, specializing in portraiture.
After attempting twice for a bursar to study abroad finally in the countess of Edla, second wife of D. Fernando would finance his study in France. There he studied the work of French naturalist, realist and impressionist painters, like Courbet, Manet and Degas without losing his distinctive style which is often gloomy and intimist.
His most famous portrait was that of the poet Antero de Quental in In this haunting work Columbano seems to have anticipated Antero's suicide. Columbano was a well known Republican, so it wasn't surprising that after the Republic proclamation, in , he was invited to design the flag of the new regime and was nominated director of the National Museum of Contemporary Art, currently the Chiado Museum, in Lisbon, of which he was in charge from to The best collection of his paintings is in the Chiado Museum, in Lisbon.

Pritchett as a writer who must rank with Proust as one of the greatest of European novelists. For Zola he was 'far greater than my own dear master, Flaubert'. Had Queiroz written in a language other than his native Portuguese he would undoubtedly have been, and be, much more famous.
His novels illuminate nineteenth-century Portuguese society as those of Dickens reveal Victorian England. Although he struggled to adapt to life in Newcastle, his first UK posting, he spent a decade in the country in various locations and wrote arresting articles and reports on contemporary social and political problems. Some literary studies have been published, but this is the first readable, yet scholarly, biography available in English.

Sort order. Apr 20, James Hartley rated it it was amazing.
It wasnt long ago that I realised all the writers I really love are dead. But I never think of them as dead, I think of them as friends, and Eca is one of my best friends.
I met him about seven years ago, in a bookshop in Coimbra in Portugal. I bought "The Crime of Father Amaro" as a souvenir: Id never heard of Eca in my life and liked the idea of a story about a dodgy priest and his lover. I dont think I read the book for about a year or two after coming home, but when I did, I was enlightened. Eca is the type of writer you read with a half-smile on your face; one you cannot help responding to emotionally.
A satirist? A misogynist? The accepted shorthand these days is to stick him a group with, but under, Zola, Flaubert etc al and say Os Maias is his best book and then leave well alone. But he loves his characters, even and especially those most fiercely lampooned. He is a great observer and a gentle anarchist as far as genre, idea or subjects are concerned writing about incest, cunnilingus, Christ, the rich, literature, spirituality, incest again - at will and, as this new, big, academic biography shows, will always be something of a mystery.
Born a bastard, soon legitimised, Eca never wrote anything in the way of biography.
He never wanted a biography to be written - comparing his history to that of Andorra: dull, in other words. In a twist which would have raised his moustache in a smile, all his personal papers went down on a boat off Lisbon just after his death. With the boat went his secrets, for despite the thousands and thousands of pages of fiction and journalism he wrote, we know very little about him.
