The Jewish Museum presents the first comprehensive exhibition in the United States dedicated to Roberto Burle Marx, one of the most prominent landscape architects of the 20th century. The son of a German Jewish father and a Brazilian Catholic mother, Burle Marx embraced modernism in the early 1930s and revolutionized landscape design by using abstraction as his guiding principle and incorporating native plants. Throughout his 60-year career, the artist designed over 2,000 gardens worldwide and discovered close to 50 plant species.
