19. Arpad SZENES (1897-1985)
19. Arpad SZENES (1897-1985) Maria Vieira Da Silva at her easel, 1942 Oil on canvas. Signed lower right. Resigned and dated on the back. Stamp "Ministro da Educação" on the back of the canvas. 34 x 24 cm. The theme of Maria Helena inspired Arpad Szenes for for forty years. It appeared as soon as he met his future wife in 1930. Most often, he represents her painting totally absorbed by her work, sometimes dreaming, other times posing other times posing like a queen. During the Brazilian period, the subject subject becomes almost obsessive. The last portrait of Maria Helena dates from 1975.
