Glauco Rodrigues studied at the School of Fine Arts, Porto Alegre (1947), and at the National School of Fine Arts, Rio de Janeiro (1949), when he took part in the National Salon, Modern Division, for the first time. In 1950, back in Porto Alegre, he took part in the founding of the Print Club (with Scliar, Danúbio Gonçalves and Glênio Bianchetti). Back in Rio (1959), he began his career as an illustrator. From 1962 to 1965, he lived in Europe. He took part several times in the São Paulo Biennale, the Salão Nacional de Arte Moderna and was present at the Venice Biennale (Italy). According to Frederico Morais, in “his paintings, themes and myths of Brazilian life parade: carnival, soccer, Indians, blacks, religion, politics, legends, beaches, the sun, flora and fauna, the regional and the national, the past and the present, art itself, including Glauco’s.” His work is characterized by its ability to engage viewers with its vivid visual language and thought-provoking themes. Posthumous retrospectives and exhibitions have reaffirmed his influence on Brazilian art and underscored his unique contributions to the cultural and socio-political discourse of his time.
