Rosina Becker do Valle (1914-2000) was a Brazilian housewife who started painting for pleasure in 1955.

She then enrolled in the school of Modern Art Museum of Rio de Janeiro, being a student of Ivan Serpa.

She participated in the National Salon of Fine Arts between 1967 and 1969, and the Bienal de São Paulo in their V and VII editions.

Rosina’s paintings fall into the style of Naïve art, (also spelled Naïf art), which is described as any form of visual art that is created by a person who lacks the formal education and training that a professional artist undergoes.

Rosina’s art reflect the bright colors and every day aspects of her native Brazil.

A very well known artist in Brazil as well as in many other countries where she frequently and successfully presented her art, Rosina painted up to the age of 86.

Rosina is considered on of the most influential women painters of the century.
