The term disparate in Spanish usually relates to folly but it can also be seen as a way of protest against an imperative reality. The works of Marcello Grassmann have this subversive aspect in the artistic context of the twentieth century. Endeavor, persistence and coherence coexist with experimentation. This project will discuss modern and contemporary subjects such as time, space and image in constant interlocution and rupture with the artistic traditions. Despite its importance, the writings about the artist are relatively scarce. Comparison will be a means of approaching the mysterious etchings that recall remote figurative universes. The artist chosen is Goya, who has been seen as an influence to modernists by virtue of the freedom of form in his late works. The analogy will be done essentially based on the observation of the images produced by the artists. It is of great privilege and significance to be associated to the project of the advisor teacher Lygia Eluf due to the opportunity of access to the so far unseen by the public etchings of Grassmann that were acquired by Unicamp.
