René Bertholo's work is one of the most unusual cases in the Portuguese artistic context. After enjoying widespread international recognition in the 1960s and 1970s, it suddenly found itself restricted to a much narrower sphere of circulation within the national context, as soon as the artist decided to come and live in Portugal. Bertholo is one of the Portuguese artists who was quickest in understanding the limitations of a local context which, by being isolated and deprived of information, tended to stifle the possibilities for the development of artistic creativity. Excited by the new fields of expression made available to him by the publication of multiple copies, whether in the area of silkscreen printing or lithography, or even within a new concept of author's editions, Bertholo joined forces with Lourdes Castro in Paris towards the end of the 1950s to set up a magazine, KWY. The appearance of this publication was soon to suggest new paths for abandoning the isolation and stagnation that had been seriously affecting the Portuguese artistic context since the appearance of its first Modernism.
