The drawing by Lygia Clark comes in a wooden frame. The originality is marked by the signature, as well as the year of origin. Lygia Clark was a Brazilian painter, sculptor and installation artist who distinctively represents Brazilian interactive art. Her work combines the three key topics Abstraction, Neoconcretism and the abandonment of art. Each of these axes anchor an important concept or constellation of works that mark a decisive step in Clark's career. Artur Barrio, Roberto Burle Marx, Max Bill and Franz Weissmann, to name but a few, were her companions. Alvaro Siza certainly had an influence on her works, the German counterpart being the works of Hermann Glöckner.
