The paper analyzes the early evolution of contemporary art in Portugal in the 1970s and 1980s in order to show how the emergence of a Portuguese avant-garde could be considered on a par with similar trends happening elsewhere in the art world. The paper discusses the artwork of Helena Almeida, Juliao Sarmento, Pedro Calapez, Rui Chafes, Julia Ventura and Antonio Olaio. The paper concludes that the 1970s and 1980s linked Portugal to the larger Western art world. Pictures of the artwork of Helena Almeida, Julia Ventura and Antonio Olaio are included with the paper.
