Antonio Godoy (1899-1973) Brazilian. Well-known artist active in the Santos area in the 1950s and 60s. Godoy worked and exhibited in the port of Santos, where he developed a special kinship with ships captains, officers and seamen and through them with many passengers from cruise ships and freighters. Seamen would visit the ABC Bar, a shipman's bar in Santos, where they could admire the artist's work.
