Product Description

This catalog reproduces in its entirety the pieces of the exhibition "Frans Post and the Dutch Brazil from the Collection of the Ricardo Brennand Institute". This exhibition was inaugurated in 2003 and that at the moment constitutes the permanent exhibition of the Institute. The Ricardo Brennand Institute is located in Recife, capital of the state of Pernambuco, Northeast of Brazil, and aims to preserve and disseminate Brazilian art and culture.

The exhibition is divided into three parts. The first is dedicated to the 18 oil paintings attributed to Frans Post, a Dutch painter who accompanied João Mauricio de Nassau-Siegen in his stay in Brazil from 1637 to 1644, and who devoted the rest of his life to painting the Brazilian landscape. It is the largest collection of Frans Post works in the world.

The second part presents pieces related to the Dutch occupation in Brazil, with maps, documents, objects and books produced during or shortly after the administration of Nassau as general governor of the Dutch dominions in Brazil. The third part of the exhibition, and consequently of this book, shows four tapestries created from paintings by Eckhout and a canvas by Van Schendel, as examples of the later exploitation of the images collected in Brazil by the artists and scientists of the Nassau entourage.
