Roberto Burle Marx : Brazilian Modernist
$50.00 Hardcover SEE Inside!
An unprecedented look at the wide-ranging artistic work of one of the 20th century’s most significant landscape architects. Over a 60-year career, he designed more than 2,000 gardens worldwide, the most famous of which are those in collaboration with the architect Oscar Niemeyer for Brasília. Burle Marx was a prolific artist in a variety of media, and his larger body of work—which includes paintings, drawings, tile mosaics, sculpture, textile design, jewelry, theater costumes, and more—is critical to understanding his importance as a modernist. An avid horticulturalist, he was among the first to denounce deforestation in the Amazon region; he also discovered over thirty species of Brazilian flora, which bear his name. This beautifully illustrated and groundbreaking publication covers the full range of Burle Marx’s artistic output, as well as his remarkable home, an abandoned estate that he transformed into his office, workshop, gallery, and living space.
