Arts ~ Mário Pedrosa.

Mário Pedrosa was born in Pernambuco, Brasil. Pedrosa is recognised as one of Latin America’s favourable public intellectual critics regarding art, history and philosophy.

Often Mário’s work focused on Brazilian visual culture through the transition era. During the 1940s, it was a critical time for the modes of modernism and social realism. Eventually, this led to new and exciting trends within the world of arts.
