Portinari´s famous work – ‘War and Peace’, a gift to United Nations – will have a permanent release in the major University of Brazil, Universidade de São Paulo (USP)

Brazil will receive a reinterpretation of “War and Peace”, a gift from Brazil to United Nations in NY; Candido Portinari is one of the main Brazilian artists.

Led by the Portuguese Isabel Ruas and Gonçalo Ruas, architects Oficina de Mosaicos – a Brazilian reference for the creation, development and execution of mosaics and based in Brazil since 36 years ago – will create a re-reading of the panels ‘War and Peace’ in mosaic, to be exposed permanently at University of São Paulo (USP).

The initiative seeks to value Brazilian culture by bringing art to public spaces. The project is supported by Portinari’s son, João Portinari, and is in the fundraising stage.

The architect, Isabel Ruas, at the head of this project, reinforces that the re-reading is something very important for the culture of the country, mainly for its educational character. “We want to take schools, children and everyone to know this Portinari work,” she says.

With two panels of 45 meters high and 33 meters long each, the original version is at the headquarters of the General Assembly of the United Nations in New York (USA). The painting was created at the request of the Brazilian government in 1952 and was given as a gift to the UN in 1956. The two panels meet separately – the ‘Guerra’ panel is at the entrance, while the panel depicting ‘Peace’ lies at the exit.

There-reading will be the same size as the original version. “It’s not a copy, because Portinari’s brushstroke will not be there. It will be the representation of the mosaic brushwork and will have its own shape”, explains Isabel.

To do this work, a foreseen expense of 3 million reais will be expected. The project will be executed via Rouanet Law and is in the fundraising stage. So far, some institutions have committed to investing, although they have not yet revealed the values. The process should last until September 2019. Among the works already done by Mosaic Workshop is the restoration of a mosaic by the artist Di Cavalcanti installed at the Teatro Cultura Artística, in the center of São Paulo.

For fund-raising, Oficina de Mosaico is receiving an e-mail via
