The Aesthetics of Gilda de Mello e Souza in Writings on Fashion and Brazilian Painting

Juliana Siqueira Franco

Abstract


This article aims to briefly present the aesthetic thought of Gilda de Mello e Souza, a Brazilian art critic, essayist and the first professor of aesthetics in the Philosophy course of Universidade de São Paulo in the 20th century. For this, it brings some excerpts from her works O Espírito das Roupas, that defends fashion as an art, and Pintura brasileira contemporânea: os precursores, focusing on Almeida Júnior’s paintings. Through these texts, it will also be possible to understand how her aesthetic thought is entwined with other areas of knowledge, when discussing anthropological, sociological and art history issues through the analyses of a singular object of art.
