Artist's Donation to the National Museum of Fine Arts
Given her interest in Brazilian art history, especially Brazilian printmaking, Renina Katz meticulously selected all the works she donated to the National Museum of Fine Arts in 2004. The collection reveals her interest in recording her creative process, as her donation included drawings (or "little projects" as she sometimes called them) and early versions of some of her work.
In addition to her finished works, the exhibition allows us to trace the first ideas that the artist put onto paper and the various stages involved in creating a print. A significant part of her work, dating from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s, is on display in this exhibition. The Museum, mindful of its founding principle and commitment to preserve, study, and promote the cultural heritage in its custody, is very grateful for this donation.
