Almeida & Dale presents works by Heitor dos Prazeres at Art Basel 2024

05/24/2024

For the Feature section of Art Basel 2024, which takes place in Basel from June 13th to 16th, Almeida & Dale is pleased to present a selection of works by Heitor dos Prazeres (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1898-1966), including oil paintings on canvas, wood and cardboard, produced primarily in the 1950s and 1960s.  

The selection of works for this edition highlights the artist's unique and vibrant style, characterized by the expressive use of colors and the depiction of themes related to Black Brazilian culture: scenes from everyday life, popular festivals, samba musicians, bohemians and other characters from Rio de Janeiro.  

Prazeres' work reflects on the post-slavery reality of Brazil's Black population by portraying his experience as a Black man, the migratory flows, religiosity, police repression, capoeira, samba, among other themes.
