Mariano is often called a "magician", who converted nature's light and forms into a beautiful object. He was a "rebel" against all modern trends already established in his time. A trend that would not give way to any new form of expression. In 1941 started working on his "Gallos"- roosters that gave him great popularity and one of them were acquired by the New York Museum of Art.
ArtWizard hereby presents an old painting of Mariano Rodrigues with one of his famous roosters.
