Abstract:

This work is fundamental to the thinking and research of Brazilian art of the twentieth century, and presents the art collection of constructivist artist Brazilian Adolpho Leirner. Constructivism began in Brazil in the 1930s, with the formation of groups such as the Break and Atelier Abstraction Flexor. Over the years, the movement advanced to reach the Neoconcretism.

The Adolpho Leirner Collection is considered as one of the most significant collections of Brazilian Concrete-Constructive art. For the first time in Europe, Haus Konstruktiv in Zürich, Switzerland, showcases the "Adolpho Leirner Collection of Brazilian Constructive Art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston". Although individual works from the collection have been shown frequently in the past years, this is the first time the entire collection of Adolpho Leirner is exhibited outside of Brazil or the United States. The art collection has been assembled by the Brazilian Adolpho Leirner (born in 1935 in Sao Paulo). Leirner studied textile development and design in England from 1953 to 1957. Interested in art, design and architecture, Adolpho Leirner became acquainted during his stay abroad with the legacy of early 20th century Constructivism. In the late 1950s, he returned to Brazil and in 1961 he bought his first artwork, Em vermelho 1958) by Milton Dacosta. In the 1960s, Adolpho Leirner focused his collecting efforts on Brazilian constructive-concrete art. Through his direct contact with living artists and art dealers, Leirner was able to systematically gather exemplary works of these key movements of Brazilian modernism.
