4123 Tarsila           Discovered 1986 Aug. 27 by H. Debehogne at the European Southern Observatory.
Tarsila do Amaral (1886-1973), known simply as Tarsila, is considered to be one of the leading Latin American modernist artists, described as "the Brazilian painter who best achieved Brazilian aspirations for nationalistic expression in a modern style". The name was suggested by E. Neves.
