Roberto Burle Marx exhibit in Germany

The exhibit "Roberto Burle Marx: Brazilian Modernist", curated by the Jewish Museum of New York, can be visited until October 3rd, in the Art Gallery of the Deutsche Bank, in Berlin.

The first exhibit dedicated to him in Germany portrays the diversity and beauty of his work; putting together watercolors, drawings, landscape projects and urban planning projects. Among his most notable works, you will find the Flamengo Park (1938) and the "wavy" sidewalks of Copacabana beach (1970), both located in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994) produced his art as a landscape architect, painter, sculptor, and set designer. Throughout his 60 years of activity, Burle Marx, an environmental activist, designed more than 2000 gardens around the world, and together with Lúcio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer, was one of the pioneers of the Brazilian Modernist Architecture movement.

His legacy live on with the work of the "Escritório de Paisagismo Burle Marx" work.
