Candido Portinari (1903 - 1962) was the Brazilian painter to achieve the greatest international fame; he is considered one of the most important artists in the country. He painted many works, from standard proportions such as "O Lavrador de Café" to gigantic murals, such as the "War and Peace" panels.

Portinari spent two years in Paris, far from his roots. This trip brought him closer to Brazil and awakened a deeper social interest in him. In the 1940s, when visiting MoMa in New York, where he exhibits, Candido Portinari was impressed by a work that profoundly changed his style: "Guernica", by Pablo Picasso.

Among his most famous works, the "War and Peace" panels that the artist painted between 1953 and 1956 stand out. In 2010, after 53 years, Candido Portinari's son managed to return the work to Brazil during the UN reform. The panels, measuring 14 m x 12 m, represented a huge amount of work for Portinari, who was ill, who wanted to send a message of peace. It was his last and most important work, which makes this document something special.
