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

In 1929, Tarsila had her first solo exhibition in Brazil, and critics were divided, as many people still did not understand her art. Still in 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 of the artist's first exhibition belonged to Tarsila do Amaral's first cousin, Tercio Ferreira do Amaral, who visited this exhibition and was her proxy when Tarsila became older. He ended up giving it as a gift to his granddaughter, Beatriz do Amaral, an artist as well.
