Study of representations of the Brazilian woman and their roles in society in the last three centuries of art in Brazil. These representations are like a mirror which reflects back the image of women from various periods in the past. Strong sections devoted to Baroque, Neoclassic, and Modernism. Paintings in particular reveal the social roles of women throughout Brazil's history, sometimes in surprising ways. Careful and detailed study on a little examined subject.
