Music, Literature and Choreography

The first image, a classic scene, representing the plastic arts. On a stone step, on the right, a woman is seated, with her hair tied back, wearing a skirt and a blouse, holding a paint palette and brushes with her left hand and a canvas resting on the floor with her right.

To the side, a figure of a child, naked, holding a brush and, on the left side, a female figure, with long hair. Wearing a long dress, with one shoulder and one breast bare, she holds a hammer in her left hand and a chisel in her right.

To her right, a female figure, standing, with her hair down, a robe hanging down, leaving one shoulder and one breast bare, with her left arm resting on a smooth column with a Corinthian capital.

In the background, three larger buildings and a lower one, portray the view from the docks of Porto Alegre, in 1950, with the word "ARS" above.

"Painting, Sculpture and Architecture"

In the foreground, on a step, a naked boy with light hair, holds a book on his shoulders. At her side, on the left, a seated female figure with long hair, wearing an orange dress, holds a lyre in her left hand, while holding papers in her right hand.

On the boy's right side, another female figure, standing on the step, wearing classic clothes, hair tied with a laurel wreath, holds a book in her left hand and a feather in her right.

In the background, in the upper left corner, a female figure, with a bare shoulder, pink tunic, holding the edge of a white robe, while her right hand is extended towards a figure reaching out towards her.

The urban setting, in the background, highlights the dome of a cathedral and part of a building, on the right side and an obelisk with statues. Over the scene, the inscription "ARS". The urban scene is a representation of Praça da Matriz, in Porto Alegre.
