Brazil in Vienna
Today, the Kunsthalle Krems in Vienna opened Brazil: From Austria to the New World, showing for the first time in Europe works on loan from the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo and other Brazilian collections. This intriguing example, depicting a nubile maiden eyeing a suggestive arrow which some saucy fellow has planted on her beach, is Iracema (1884) by José Maria de Medeiros, on loan from the Museu Nacional de Belas Artes in Rio de Janeiro. The exhibition continues until 17 February 2008. Click the title link for details.
