The first major retrospective of the work of Lasar Segall, this catalog explores the artist's changing cultural and artistic identities as demonstrated in over 224.

Segall was an influential artist who infused Brazilian modernism with the color, psychological intensity, and spatial distortion characteristic of the German tradition. He later became concerned with a spiritualism rooted in a universal humanism and communion with nature. Documenting the Diaspora of the Jews and embodying modern notions of "exoticism" and "primitivism" in modern art, Segall's work presents a range of issues significant to today's global culture and politics.
