Otherworldly knights, ethereal spirits, agitated beasts – these are the beings that feature in the works of one of Brazil’s best-known and deeply admired printmakers, Marcelo Grassmann, who died last year at the age of 88. 

‘Marcelo Grassmann: Gravuras do acervo da Pinacoteca’ (Prints from the Pinacoteca Collection), dips into the 387 works acquired by the Pinacoteca in 1969, selecting around 90 of his darkly enigmatic visions.

Grassmann began working with woodcuts in the 1940s, going on to incorporate metal-cut plates in the production of his prints. He found fame as an artist in Brazil in the 1950s, even before taking part in the Biennales of Venice (1958) and Florence (1972). His legacy is a life’s work of intensely compelling artworks – which was still being added to in 2012, when he released a limited-edition collection of lithographs in book form. Grassmann’s perplexing prints display a stylized expressionist rage – and capture humanity’s strength when we confront our monsters.
