The art exhibition “Um brasileiro em Paris” (A Brazilian in Paris) by Cândido de Faria will be on display at the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil (CCBB), from November 7th to December 30th.

It is a collection of 18 posters produced by the artist Cândido de Faria for the Cinematographic company Phaté, the greatest film producer between the years 1902 and 1911. With curatorship of Germana Araújo, the exhibition makes a chronological rescue of works in lithography.

Cândido Aragozes de Faria was a Brazilian illustrator and publicityist, been considered one of the greatest cartoonists and illustrators in Brazil and one of the greatest of his time, producing hundreds of pieces of humor and publicity for 45 years. As a posterist and illustrator, Mr. Faria contributed to give a characteristic face to the vibrant “Belle Époque”,  period between the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Mr. Faria portrayed the Parisian bohemia of the period that was populated by artists and intellectuals, at a time when Paris became the most dynamic and progressive cultural center of the West.

In addition to the exhibition, there will also be the launch of the book “Cândido de Faria um ilustrador sergipano  das artes aplicadas”, by Germana Araújo. The book rescues the first collection of works of the artist during different periods of his life.
