This coming month, starting on Feb. 11th, New York will receive the largest exhibit ever organized in the United States on the work of the late Brazilian artist Tarsila do Amaral (1886-1973); a seminal Latin American Modernism representative. The exhibit will be held by the New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

In the exhibit, the visitor will be able to learn about Mrs. Amaral's trajectory, from her childhood in rural São Paulo state, her time in Paris as an art student, and her work in her home country. She is considered one of the greatests names in Brazil's fine arts; and, her work as a major source of inspiration to a whole generation of Brazilian artists in the second half of the 20th century.

Among her most famous works - such as "A Negra" (1923) and "Antropofagia" (1928) - visitors will be able to appreciate "Abaporu" (1928); a work that inspired the Modernist Manifesto and which is considered the most valuable Brazilian painting.

Following Lygia Pape's at the Met Breuer, and Hélio Oiticica's at the Whitney Museum of American Art, this is the third large exhibit dedicated to a Brazilian artist held by MoMA in less than a year.

The exhibit will be open from February 11th until June 3rd, 2018. Check out detailed information at MoMA's website.
