Event Description: “Painters and sculptors find inspiration in all aspects of Brazilian life. For the first time the MFA presents a selection of works by 20th-century Brazilian artists of African descent. Rarely studied in the United States, these painters and sculptors drew on indigenous, European, and African traditions, and found inspiration in all aspects of Brazilian life—religious rituals, urban and rural life, music, and dance. Each artist has a distinct approach to subject, style, and iconography creating a lively range of imagery. The exhibition features key works by Heitor dos Prazeres, Maria Auxiliadora da Silva, and Waldemiro de Deus. All are recent acquisitions from the collection of John Axelrod.”MFA Boston https://www.mfa.org/exhibitions/samba-spirit
