The present edition goes beyond an exhibition catalogue; it is an extensive study on Brazilian Modernism that assembles past and present critical texts, biographic data and analytical essays related to this artistic revolution's consolidation and development in the decades of the 1920s and 1930s. This anthology of fundamental historic-critical texts accompanies the biographies of artists that include: Tarsila do Amaral, Vicente do Rego Monteiro, Ismael Nery, Anita Malfati, Lasar Segall, Di Calvalcanti and other modernists whose artworks were selected from the holdings of the private Nemirovsky collection and other public institutions.
