Saudade is a Portuguese word that has no translation, it would be the "lack due to the absence of someone" and Clara made this work thinking of her grandmother who is abroad with her uncle. This is the first time that Clara is far away from her for so long. Through this painting, she tries to explain this untranslatable word to us through a strong, dense image full of intimate meaning for her.
