Still More Distant Journeys
The Artistic Emigrations of Lasar Segall
Distributed for Smart Museum of Art, The University of Chicago
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.
