Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil | MoMA LIVE

“I want to be the painter of my country.” – Tarsila do Amaral, 1923.

Though Tarsila do Amaral is widely celebrated in her native country, this is the first exhibition in the United States devoted exclusively to Tarsila’s groundbreaking art. Featuring over 100 works, including paintings, drawings, sketchbooks, photographs, and historical documents drawn from collections across Latin America, Europe, and the US, Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil is a rare opportunity to explore the work of this daring modernist.
