Modernist Women Artists: Strategies of Acclaim in Brazil

Mulheres Modernistas: Estratégias de Consagração na Arte Brasileira

How can one explain the leading role of two painters – Anita Malfatti and Tarsila do Amaral – as the great pioneers of Brazilian modernism? Attentive to the international dynamics of modern art and in critical dialogue with the paradigms of the historiography of feminist art, Ana Paula Simioni discusses this uniqueness of the country. The counterpoint with a less recognized artist – Regina Gomide Graz – deepens the analysis with an innovative look at the relationship between artistic materialities and genre. The success of these artists didn’t occur in spite of the genre, but through it.
