The wonderful yield of Johann Mori(t)z Rugendas’
(Augsburg 1802 – Weilheim 1858) first voyage (1821-1825), which he started together with the Russian Privy Councillor and Prussian consul general in Rio de Janeiro, Georg Heinrich von Langsdorff, into the interior of Brazil to capture the peculiarities of the country. Though this connection did not last it was the beginning for his multiple decades-long own voyages through Central and South America resulting in a plenty of drawings “of highest interest. In the characteristic and natural representation of humans, animals and plants of strange, first tropical countries only few could be placed at his side”. And already the work here
“ … made the artist famous, (its illustrations) showing humans and animals, districts and the luxuriant vegetation of that country in full truth and faithfulness ”
