In Petrópolis, paintings take the journey through 19th century Brazil
If your idea of leisure is some quieter program, you also have an option here. In fact, in Petropolis. The beautiful Imperial Museum has the exhibition ‘The German Look at the Genesis of Brazil’. It is a tour of our country through the eyes of German artists and scientists who visited us in the 19th century. Among them, Johann Moritz Rugendas, Thomas Ender, Friedrich Hagedorn, Eduard Hildebrandt and Augusto Müller.
Time travel begins with the ‘Rio de Janeiro in sight’ module. With the opening of the ports in 1808, landscape landmarks of Rio de Janeiro began to circulate around the world, such as Corcovado, Sugarloaf Mountain, Igreja da Glória and Morro do Castelo, in paintings and lithographs. Yes, it was there that the world discovered the Marvelous City. This internationalization provided commercial, diplomatic, scientific transit and the arrival of artists, attracted by the dazzling nature of the new country.
The sad omnipresence of slavery did not escape the attention of painters.
