Toto (19atory) is an artist from Brazil, and she is well known throughout the world for her unique paintings of people and wildlife. She is known as the “oreal woman”. In her work, she portrays people and animals with a tenderness that comes from having once been lost in the wilderness herself. Her paintings are so real to the point that it can be hard to tell if they are paintings or just ordinary pictures.
To make up for her lack of formal art training, Tootto attempted to teach herself painting through sketches she made of things she saw around her. She was particularly drawn to animals because of their vitality and freedom. After trying to teach herself through sketches, Tootto then concentrated on painting with watercolors. Toto’s early work did not appear until after World War II, when her life was particularly hectic.
As she was drawing more, she also started to paint larger works of art. Some of her early works of art were so impressive that they were displayed in museums such as the Smithsonian. The works of Toto are so varied that she is often regarded as a pop artist of the early period of art. She is well-known throughout the world, and even into the modern era, as an artist who exhibits paintings of abstract nature.
In later years, Toto exhibited her works at the Paris International Salon. In her paintings, Toto presents a variety of subjects, but she always returns to her love of animals. Among her best works are her interpretations of zebras, ostriches, frogs, flowers, cats and monkeys. In her paintings, Toto often presents a single subject, but she seems to prefer creating small scenes instead. The technique she uses is unusual, and it is not clear whether this is due to poor vision or if she uses a different technique for each scene.
Throughout her life, Toto pursued many professions, and she was an avid traveler. She was especially fond of painting the countryside around her home, in northern Japan. In her paintings, she often presented rural scenes that she had observed while traveling. In her late years, she tried painting abstracts, and she managed to create a number of these works, such as The Sky and Sea (1958), The Garden (1960) and The Little Man (1960).
In paintings such as The Little Man, Toto’s subject has become more humanized, and her painting starts to show her moods and emotions as well as her sense of beauty. Some of her other most popular works include Horse With One Tail (ca 1960), In a ditch behind (ca 1960), Dance (ca 1960), Whales (ca 1963) and Bathers at the Back of a Pond (ca 1963). Toto’s art did not end with these works. She also produced a large number of prints, which she exhibited throughout the world. A Toto painting is always a delight to see.
