Collectable prints are rare and unique works of art - from original pre-war advertisement posters, to contemporary exhibitions prints, to out-of-print and hard to find gems. Although not signed or numbered like a limited edition, they often appreciate in value over time due to their rarity and age. Because of the unique history of each item, collectable prints may show minor signs of handling, aging, or original print defects. Unless otherwise noted, each print is guaranteed to be in very good condition or better.
It is through paintings such as ‘Futebol’ that Portinari expresses his true inspiration. Being an enthusiastic football player as a child, Portinari had broken his right leg, an accident which gave him a permanent limp. Portinari painted various versions of a football game at different stages of his life. The one chosen for the Official Art Print Edition 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ depicts a children's football game on the red earth typical of the coffee plantations of the artist’s childhood.
