Meet Tarsila do Amaral, a trailblazer at the heart of the invention of modern art in Brazil. Tarsila, as she is affectionately called in Brazil, pushed the boundaries of modern art in her country by ingesting and transforming sources, both outside and inside Brazil, to produce powerful emblems of her new vision.
Forging her own path on an international stage in the 1920s, her work unapologetically celebrates the lush colors and subject matter of her own country. Follow her travels between her native São Paulo and Paris, and throughout Brazil, as she discovers the poetic potential of her homeland.
