33. Cinco moças de Guaratinguetá (The Five Girls from Guaratinguetá), 1930. In this painting, Di Cavalcanti uses Cubist spatial flattening and geometric simplification of the bodies to elaborate his picture of five young women of different and mixed races, another distinctive feature of Brazilian society. They are shown in a modern, urban context.
