Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994) is considered by many to be the godfather of 20th century Brazilian landscape design and is internationally renowned for his tropical gardens and mosaic walks such as the Copacabana beach promenade. Burle Marx was born in Brazil and studied painting in Germany and later at the National School of Fine Arts in Rio de Janeiro.

Strongly influenced by abstract art and Brazilian folk art, Burle Marx developed a unique dialogue between his garden designs and his artistic works, with each echoing and inspiring the other.
