Series III contains circa 1300 original pen and ink caricatures and comics (some colored) by Valença, circa 300 smaller pencil sketches, watercolor and crayon studies done in the studio of José Malhôa and memorabilia of his journalistic work. Among the highlights of this series are the files of caricatures published in the newspaper Sempre Fixe as well as the files comprising the large amount of undated pen and ink caricatures.
