Artist's description:

“I always say ‘te amo” Known for her colorful outfits and fruit-bedecked headgear, Carmen Miranda was one of the first ambassadors of Latin American popular music and the precursor of Brazil’s Tropicalismo cultural movement. But her success in the U.S. didn’t translate back home, where she was rejected for being a sellout. This wounded Carmen deeply and for the rest of her life she remained tied to both American and Latin culture. The stitching style on this portrait represents this cross- cultural link.
