Item description for Beatriz Milhazes by Domaine de Kerguehennec, Federic Paul & Simon Wallis...

Colorful as Carmen Miranda, the paintings of Beatriz Milhazes are a malange of iconographic Brazilian imagery, drawing from folk art, crafts, jewelry, tropical nature, and the splash of carnival, all funneled through a modernist sensibility. Vibrant swirls, bold stripes, and intricate rosettes show both delicacy and sweep in a practice situated somewhere between figuration and abstraction. "Color is the core of my work," Milhazes says in an extensive interview with fashion designer Christian Lacroix included in this compact catalogue covering paintings from 1996 to 2004, originally exhibited at the Domaine de Kerguehennec in Bignon, France. An essay by Simon Wallis of the Institute of Contemporary Art in London and an introduction by Fradaric Paul place this recent work within the context of her oeuvre.

More About Domaine de Kerguehennec, Federic Paul & Simon Wallis

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Camilla Morton is a London-based fashion writer and the author of the international bestseller "How to Walk in High Heels", which has been translated into twenty languages worldwide. She was the runway reporter for U.K., covering all international and couture collections. Morton has collaborated with several designers and written for magazines, newspapers and blogs, including "Time" magazine's "Style and Design," SHOWStudio, the "Wall Street Journal"'s "Off Duty" section, and "Harper's Bazaar" in both the U.S. and the U.K. This is her fifth book.

Diane von FUrstenberg arrived in New York in 1970 with a suitcase full of her iconic wrap dresses and changed the way women dressed. DVF has pioneered fashion and business, built and sold a cosmetics company and founded a publishing house, and she supports many philanthropic causes--especially for women and the environment. DVF returned from a hiatus to fashion in 1997, relaunching the signature wrap to international acclaim. In 2005 the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) awarded her a Lifetime Achievement Award, and the following year named her as the Council President.

Christian Lacroix was born in 1951.

Reviews - What do customers think about Beatriz Milhazes?

fabulous artist  May 3, 2008
Beatriz Milhazes is a fabulous young artist and I am glad to have this book which
includes a lengthy interview with her by fashion designer Christian Lacroix
(the text of this book is in both English & French)
and a description and photos of the artists' studio and certain of her paintings while she the artist is at
work on them.

Since this is a small book in dimensions (approx. 9 1/2 x 7 inches)
the photos are smaller scale than would be nice to see of her large paintings---but the book is what it is--
so a complaint about the image quality is really pointless. I am just glad to have the information on
this wonderful on important artist now, and I am sure that in more advanced stages of her career there will be large coffee table books of her work with glossy big pictures in them.
disappointment  Sep 6, 2006
The photos are small, and the quality of the photos
not good. Lighting bad. Cheap lens.

The book is mostly type.
Too many art pieces that you
want to see better are ganged up on a page.

I guess it does give you some idea of Millhazes
style, but the woman is a design genius and deserves better.
