Influences

Anita Malfatti was a precursor of modern art in Brazil at the end of the 1910s and a few years later she would be part of the most important event that “officially” introduced modernism to the Brazilian society: “A Semana de Arte Moderna de 1922” (The 1922 week of modern art).

Malfatti studied in Germany (1910-1914) where she first had contact with new art techniques and was immersed in the effervescent art scene of German expressionism.

She got to visit exhibitions where she saw the French impressionists, expressionists and cubist artists, which had a profound influence on her painting.

She produced many works with vivid colours and strong brushstrokes recognizable from this period of German art.
