The text was illustrated with a drawing from the series by Tarsila do Amaral, who had taken part that same year in an exhibition at the Galerie Percier in Paris. From that point on, following her time in Paris, her works combined the indigenist trends that explored Brazil’s popular culture with influences from European styles. This led to her being described by Edward Lucie-Smith as “the Brazilian painter who best achieved Brazilian aspirations for nationalistic expression in a modern style.” Her work represents the first step in the definition of an indigenist aesthetic which, despite being in dialogue with Europe, attempted to shape a new model, based on specifically Latin American culture.
