Descrizione libro Editora Index, 1988. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Unpaged. First edition. Brazil artist's monograph specializing in textiles; text in Portuguese and English; with color photographic plates throughout. Glossy, photo-pictorial boards enclosed in a printed, folding, cardboard enclosure. Binding tight; boards clean, small closed tear head of spine; no dust jacket (as issued). Introduction by Antônio Houaiss. INSCRIBED by the artist, Madeleine Colaço, on the title page. Perhaps best known for creating the "Brazilian" stitch in embroidery. Two sections: 1) The Life and Art of Madeleine; and 2) The Rhythm of the "Embroidered Samba." Quoting from the text of Dilys Blum, Textile Curator, Phila. Museum of Art: Although technically Madeleine Colaço's artistry is based on traditional tapestry and embroidery, it is the music of her adopted country, Brazil, that has transformed the artist's work into a uniquely personal vision, a lyrical expression of love for Brazil's flora and fauna, its people and its architecture.
