Rare engraving by Carlos Oswald (to be cleaned).
Painter and engraver, Carlos Oswald (1882-1971) is one of the main artists who made his mark on the Art history in Brazil and in the Fine Arts in Rio. After the exhibition of his works at the Caixa Cultural of Rio, and subsequently in São Paulo, lets take a look back at the career of a man who dedicated his life to his passion.
A natural talent.
Carlos Oswald was born in 1882 in Florence, and was the eldest son of Brazilian composer Henrique Oswald. With Swiss-German and Italian origins from his father, and French and Tuscan ancestors on his mother's side. Many Brazilians traveling to Europe stop by the Oswald family, arousing the young man’s curiosity regarding his father’s country. Carlos studied the violin for a time, but his great shyness crippled him. He then imagined his future in engineering or architecture, but he finally turned to fine arts. He began painting, including portraits, inspired by French Impressionists.
In 1904, while his father was appointed Director of the National School of Music of Rio de Janeiro, the Italian-Brazilian artist began shipping his works to Brazil for them to be exhibited. He only came to Brazil in 1906; his emotion was really great. He moved to Tijuca and was amazed by the beauty of Rio de Janeiro. The Botanical Garden, the bay and the rainforest then became the main subjects of his works. And he chose the engraving method which was unknown across the Atlantic at the time. He held his first individual exhibition in Rio in 1907. Critics are largely positive and he returned to Italy strengthened by this success.
In 1910, the Brazilian Government invited him to decorate the music room of Brazil’s pavilion at the World Fair in Turin. Carlos Oswald travelled across Europe and spent time with the greatest masters. In 1913, he left for a trip to temporary trip to Brazil with his brother Alfredo, but World War I will extend his stay. Carlos then got into the Carioca Art environment and founded the first school of engraving in Brazil. His career really took off in 1918. The same year, he became friends with Paul Claudel. Over time, his works integrate religious subjects. He also taught at Liceu de Artes e Ofícios with many famous artists for students such as, Raimundo Cela (1890-1954), Lasar Segall (1891-1957), Oswaldo Goeldi (1895-1961), Lívio Abramo (1903-1992) and even Fayga Ostrower (1920-2001).
Consulted in 1930 by Heitor da Silva Costa during the building of Christ the Redeemer, Carlos Oswald studied and drawn the statue and its details. The idea of a Christ with the arms outstretched, which would be identifiable as a cross from a distance, would be an idea of the artist. Carlos Oswald eventually created many devotional works and decorated many churches. The stained glass windows of Santa Teresinha do Tunel are among his most famous works. He was involved in the creation of the Sociedade Brasileira de Arte Crista in 1946. It also passed on his knowledge through engraving classes in the Getulio Vargas Institute. Carlos Oswald died in Petrópolis in 1971.
