• In August he moves to the right-hand side apartment on the third floor of No. 2, Rua Ivens (Pensão Liège) in Lisbon.
  • In October he moves to the second floor of No. 192, Rua de São Marçal, Lisbon.
  • On 30 August, while in Angra do Heroísmo, he asks the sculptor Vasco Almedia Lucena, a fellow colleague at Lisbon’s Escola de Belas-Artes, to submit a proxy application granting him the power to enroll Dacosta on the architectural design module, the only one that he still has to complete in order to finish the special painting course. On 21 October he applies for an attendance certificate for the special painting course, which is still ongoing, as he wishes to apply for the post of technical education teacher. There is no record of this application.
  • He produces his first clearly surrealist work (Diálogo).
  • An informal request is made to Dacosta for a piece for the Portuguese World Exhibition, and the artist submits a surrealist drawing (Portugal Insular). This is deemed inadequate and returned to him. He would later gift the drawing to his friend, painter Maduro Dias, during one of his holiday visits to Angra do Heroísmo, when they met on the terrace of the customs building in the city.
