Eva and Americo Makk
Did you know that Eva and Americo Makk were the official artists of the Brazilian government in the 1950's? They were commissioned to paint portaits and large murals for government palaces. They were commissioned to paint 14 churches and cathedrals! There is sooooo much to know about them!
Just this past year, a church in Jau (Sao Paulo) Brazil, celebrated the anniversary of their church. They also celebrated the great masters, then a young couple, who created masterpieces of enormous size on the ceiling and walls of the church.
