Emiliano di Cavalcanti expertly captures the bold sensuality and exuberant spirit of his native Rio de Janeiro. The artist provocatively situates his subject as an earthly being in Reclining Nude with Fish and Fruit. This majestic painting will be offered in the Latin America: Modern Art auction on 21 November in New York.
