Mário de Andrade

Mário de Andrade (1893–1945) was a Brazilian poet, novelist, musicologist, art historian and critic, and photographer. He was the driving force behind the Week of Modern Art, the 1922 event that reshaped both literature and the visual arts in Brazil, and a member of the avant-garde “Group of Five.” At the end of his life, he became the founding director of São Paulo’s Department of Culture, formalizing a role he had long held as the catalyst of the city’s—and the nation’s—entry into artistic modernity.
