Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil

Sun 8 Oct 2017 - Sun 7 Jan 2018

The Art Institute of Chicago is exhibiting works by one of Brazil's greatest artists of the 20th century.

Tarsila do Amaral (1886–1973) was a central figure in the development of Brazil’s modern art, and her influence reverberates throughout 20th- and 21st-century art. Although relatively little-known outside Latin America, her paintings and drawings reflect her ambitions to synthesize the currents of avant-garde art and create an original modern art for her home country. Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil, the first major museum exhibition in North America devoted to the artist, focuses on her work in the 1920s, when she traveled between São Paulo and Paris, participating in the creative and social lives of both cities and forging her own unique artistic style.
