Catalog of the first exhibition of the painter Tarsila do Amaral in Brazil, in Rio de Janeiro, in 1929.

In Portuguese. 15.8 cm x 22 cm. Good condition, some moisture stains and minor restorations that do not affect the content and quality of the document. Single piece.

Tarsila do Amaral (1886 - 1973) was a great Brazilian painter and designer. She launched the "Antropofagia" movement, which was the most radical of all the movements of the Modernist period, inspired by her famous painting "Abaporu" (offered by her to Oswald de Andrade, her husband).

In 1929, Tarsila held her first solo exhibition in Brazil, and critics were divided, as many people still did not understand her art. Also in that year of 1929, there was the New York stock market crisis and the coffee crisis in Brazil, thus changing Tarsila's reality. Her father lost a lot of money, his farms were mortgaged and she had to work. He separated from Oswald de Andrade.

This catalog from the artist's first exhibition belonged to Tarsila do Amaral's cousin brother, Tercio Ferreira do Amaral, who visited this exhibition and was her attorney when Tarsila got older. He ended up giving it to his granddaughter, Beatriz do Amaral, who is also an artist.
