From April 13th, the Marcos Amaro Art Factory (FAMA), in Itu, will host the exhibition Approximations – Brief introduction to XNUMXth century Brazilian art, curated by Aracy Amaral. The exhibition brings together 60 works, including paintings, drawings, engravings, sculptures and photographs that, juxtaposed, make it possible to understand the social, political and, mainly artistic, contexts in which they were produced. The clipping features works by important names in Brazilian art, from Almeida Junior to Geraldo de Barros, including the most famous modernists, including Anita Malfatti, Di Cavalcanti and Tarsila do Amaral.

At the end of the 1816th century, Brazilians took Europe as an economic and cultural reference and, in particular, the French capital, Paris. Here, São Paulo was beginning to take its first steps towards industrialization, sponsored by the coffee-producing elite in the interior of the state, which had a certain identification with the culture of the old continent. The incorporation of European standards in art was not something new, but it went back to XNUMX, marked by the arrival of the French Artistic Mission to Brazil and the foundation of the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts, in Rio de Janeiro, by the Portuguese crown.
