Paperback, 11x15cm, 124p, English, MASP, 2020
This guide presents a selection of 57 works from the MASP’s collection, accompanied by commentaries on each of them. The compilation is a snippet of an entire universe of almost 12 thousand artworks, including art from Africa, the Americas and Brazil, Asia, and Europe, from Antiquity to the 21st century and comprised of painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, and fashion, amongst other media.
As well as works taken from European art collections, including names such as Raphael, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cézanne, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Amedeo Modigliani, and Pablo Picasso, this publication reproduces artworks from a multitude of cultures, such as a sculpture of the deity Eshu (Oyo, Nigeria) and a Marajoara ceramic urn. Amongst the Brazilians, we have works from Maria Auxiliadora da Silva, Agostinho Batista de Freitas, and José Antonio da Silva, self-taught artists who worked outside academia and the traditional art circuit and who have systematically been left out of the official version of the history of art. This group allows us to access a wider and more diverse panorama of Brazilian culture, next to better-known artists such as Anita Malfatti, Tarsila do Amaral, Emiliano Di Cavalcanti, Candido Portinari, and Victor Meirelles.
This new edition also includes works by contemporary artists who have been incorporated into the collection in recent years, including the strong presence of female and Afro-descendant artists, such as Abdias Nascimento, Anna Maria Maiolino, Dalton Paula, the collective Guerrilla Girls, Flávio Cerqueira, Heitor dos Prazeres, Hulda Guzmán, Jaime Lauriano, Leonor Antunes, Lucia Laguna, Melvin Edwards, Rosana Paulino, Rubem Valentim, and Sonia Gomes.
