Central figure of Brazilian modernism, Tarsila do Amaral (1886-1973) is the creator of an original and evocative work, drawing on the indigenous, popular and modern imaginations of a country in full transformation.

From October 9, discover its magical, mysterious and engaged universe, made of vibrant landscapes and geometric compositions! The exhibition highlights the revolutionary artistic heritage of the artist through his greatest masterpieces, and guides you to discover a country in the midst of change, plagued by societal and identity questions.

From Paris to São PauloTarsila do Amaral puts her iconographic universe to the test cubism and primitivismbefore initiating the movement “ anthropophagic », advocating the “devouring” by Brazilians of colonizing cultures as a form of resistance.

Brightly colored landscapes, unusual and fascinating visions, dreamlike gigantism and almost abstract geometry of his latest compositions only confirm the power of a work anchored in its time and always ready to renew itself.

A unique retrospective to discover at the Luxembourg Museum, from October 9, 2024 to February 2, 2025.
