Brazilian Modern: The Living Art of Roberto Burle Marx

June 25, 2019
through September 29, 2019

Roberto Burle Marx (1909–1994) was a force of nature in Brazil—through his bold landscapes, vibrant art, and passionate commitment to plant conservation. His powerful modernist vision produced thousands of gardens and landscapes, including the famous curving mosaic walkways at Copacabana Beach in Rio and the beautiful rooftop garden at Banco Safra in São Paulo. Observe his artistic energy and love of plants during the New York Botanical Garden’s exhibition of lush gardens; paintings, drawings, and textiles; and the sights and sounds of Brazil that inspired his life and work.
