Lith. de Engelmann, Rue Louis-le-Grand No 27 a Paris
Lithograph, printed area 295 x 340mm (11¾ x 13½").
Landscape in the state of Rio de Janeiro, with hunters shooting crocodile in foreground. 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. This particular plate is of added interest owing to the involvement of the landscape painter Richard Parkes Bonington (1802-28) as a draughtsman. Bonington lived in Paris for part of his short career, sharing a studio with Delacroix, and despite his death from tuberculosis at the age of 25, his work has consistently been held in high esteem.
