Lithograph. Sheet 270 x 335mm. Trimmed into image on three sides.
A view on the quay of Porto Estrela, with boats being loaded from a mule train. 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.
