Anita Malfatti


In this class, you will learn about the first artist who introduced modernism to Brazil. Her work was so ground-breaking that she was both criticised and treated as mad; whilst also being canonised as the banner for the new Modern aesthetic in the country. However, she rebelled towards all those categories and pursued her own vision, even if it meant swimming against the current her entire life.




En esta clase aprenderás sobre la primera artista que introdujo el modernismo en Brazil. Su trabajo fue tan innovador que fue tanto criticada y tratada de loca, como canonizada como la bandera de la nueva estética moderna en su país. Sin embargo, ella se rebeló contra todas esas categorías y persiguió su propia visión, así significara nadar contra la corriente durante toda su vida.
