Giveaway: Beatriz Milhazes’ Col­or­ful Ex­pand­ed Monograph

Apr. 20, 2021

Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes’ colorful monograph has recently been expanded to include works made as recently as 2020, exploring all of the artist’s creative phases, from her beginnings to the present, with over 300 works. Milhazes’ abstract modernist works have been lauded as comparable to art icons like Henri Matisse and Bridget Riley, but her paintings present a unique take on the traditional, punctuated with the colours and symbols of everyday life in Brazil.

Milhazes’ Berlin gallery, Galerie Max Hetzler, describes the evolution of her work: “Although painting forms a major part of her œuvre since the beginning of her career, Milhazes constantly extends her work and includes different media like textiles, wrappers, collages or delicate mobiles consisting of mirroring balls, chains and flowers.” Milhazes experienced her breakthrough in the art world in the 1990s, and has since expanded the scope of her media to include large-scale and site-specific projects.

The new publication by Taschen was created in close collaboration with the artist, in both the selection of images and specially designed pages between chapters. It includes an art historical essay by David Ebony, a poetic dictionary of Milhazes’s key motifs by Adriano Pedrosa, and a detailed, updated artist biography by Luiza Interlenghi.
