Famile Indienne.
Famile Indienne. Botocudos.
Dess: d'ap: nat: par Rugendas. Lith par. V. Adam.
[n.d., c.1830.]
Lithograph. Sheet size: 420 x 325mm (16½ x 12¾" ). Crease to sheet.
A scene of a family of the Botocudos tribe of Indians, a plate from Johann Moritz Rugendas's 'Voyage pittoresque dans le Bresil... traduit de l'Allemand par Mr. de Golbery'. Rugendas (1802-58, great-great grandson of Georg Philipp Rugendas, the celebrated painter of battles) arrived in Brazil in 1821 and was hired as an illustrator by Baron von Langsdorff, the consul-general of the Russian Empire in Brazil. Fortunately for Rugendas, the two fell out before Langsdorff's disasterous Amazon expedition, after which Rugendas spent his time recording daily life in the provinces of Mato Grosso, Pernambuco, Bahia, Espírito Santo and Rio de Janeiro in drawing and watercolour. He returned to Europe in 1825 and devoted his time to publishing his work in parts between 1827 and 1835, which is regarded as one of the most important descriptions of Brazil ever.

View showing the Rio de Janeiro coastline, taken from the Mosteiro de São Bento (Monastery of St Benedict). Plate from 'Voyage pittoresque au Brésil' (1827-35), a volume of lithographs after drawings by Johann Moritz Rugendas (1802-58). Rugendas, who came from a family including several notable artists, travelled to Brazil in 1821 as draughtsman with the Russian diplomat Baron de Langsdorff’s scientific expedition. However, Rugendas left the expedition, discovering Brazil for himself and returning to Europe in 1825 with the extraordinary collection of drawings which provided the material for 'Voyage pittoresque'. Encouraged by the German scientist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt, Rugendas returned to Latin America in 1831, living until 1845 in Mexico and Chile with shorter stays in Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, and Uruguay, and drawing and painting prolifically throughout this time. He returned to Bavaria, where nearly 3000 drawings and paintings were acquired by the local government, but he then went back to live in Brazil between 1845 and 1846.
