The catalogue comprises three unpublished essays by José Augusto Ribeiro, curator of the exhibition, Rafael Cardoso, historian of art and design and Ana Belluzzo, Professor and art critic. The book includes color reproductions of the works presented, an extensive illustrated chronology and a compilation of already published texts about the trajectory of the artist. This exhibition commemorates the 120th anniversary of the birth of one of the leading artists of Brazilian Modernism, Di Cavalcanti. The selection brings together more than 200 artworks including paintings, drawings, illustrations and mural projects produced during a career that spanned six decades. The show draws attention to the variety of visual solutions that the artist adopted in portraying Bohemian life, samba and the social types that, as he saw it, composed the image of a Brazil that is both modern and popular.ʺ--Verso Cover.
