A farmer of Italian origin who settled in Brazil, Albino Braz is diagnosed with schizophrenia. Interned in the Juqueri psychiatric hospital in Sao Paulo in 1934, he remains there for sixteen years until his death. His drawings in lead and colored pencil predominantly represent naked figures of imposing size surrounded by real or imaginary animals. Often, these scenes betray an epic character, with the chief protagonists asserting their dominance over an animal or a figure of the opposite sex as they brandish a tool, a flower, or another animal.
