From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ana Maria Pacheco (born 1943 in Goiânia, Brazil) is a Brazilian artist who works in the United Kingdom. Her work is partly inspired by the troubled period of Brazil's history, culminating in the takeover by the military junta in 1964, to which she was an eyewitness. She moved to London in 1973 to study at the Slade School of Art; from 1985 to 1989, she was Head of Fine Art at the Norwich School of Art.

Despite also being a painter and printmaker, Pacheco is best known for her multi-figure groups of sculptures carved from wood. These include Man and his Sheep (Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery) and Dark Night of the Soul (1999), created during her residency at the National Gallery, London as a response to The Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian by the Pollaiuolo brothers.
