Known by all for her intelligent and surprising spontaneity, her generosity and joy of living, the great Brazilian Isolda was brave to her last moments on the Earth.
Capable of playing and wanting to uplift those who love her and suffer with her departure of the physical form.
At the age of eighty, after some month of infirmity, she managed to release her body quick and decisively; as it was her way of resolving things in life.
Inspite the immense lack we feel, let us be conscientious that we are nearer to those we love and in whom we think, than to those we are physically close to.
Isolda left her body on the 26 September 2004 in her atelier in Rio
and is following now in heaven her path in search of the true face of the angels.

The name Isolda is perhaps inspired by a heart breaking music of Wagner, on the drama of 'Tristan and Isolda', a passionate prohibited love and a romantic death, similar to Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet'.
An enthusiastic lover of the Greek ideal, of the Renascence, of Humanism and the great achievements of the human spirit, like Art, Music, Poetry and Science, the great Brazilian painter Isolda makes right to her name, by the lyricism, romanticism, and heroic spirit visible in her work.
But she goes further, in search of the face of the angel, of the Divine, in search of the true love, the source of all beauty.
.-"The face is the great landscape", she used to say.
