Realist Segall

The exhibition Realist Segall is based on Mário de Andrade’s affirmation that segallist production is the biggest proof that artists linked to European vanguards had left experimentalism to return to realism. The 150 pieces in show are under Tadeu Chiarelli – one of the main specialists in Brazilian modern art – curatorship. Expressive part of the exhibition is composed by significant works from Lasar Segall Museum / IPHAN collection, besides works of cultural institutions and private collectors. The visitors can also see some sculptures.

The show does not try to exhibit Lasar Segall works as the recurring fitting of historical expressionism but to see it inside the complex scene of Brazilian and international painting during the period between world wars. In the period that the artist work reached ripening, influences coming from the most varied stylistics sources assumed as a common denominator in maintenance of apparent real. In show the public might watch as Segall goes through this line common to many fundamental artists in the period, always trying to find an proper articulation in this obligation with reality.
