Exposição inspirada em fauna brasileira 'Curious Creatures'
Vamos nos encontrar para visitar juntos a exposição 'Curious Creatures', do artista Frans Post que foi ao Brasil e desenhou por 7 anos a exótica flora e fauna de lá. Junte-se a nós para ter o prazer de contemplar esta fabulosa coleção de 34 desenhos que está exposta na maravilhosa National Gallery of Ireland. Depois podemos ir a um café para conversar sobre as nossas impressões (em português e\ou inglês) e conhecer novas pessoas interessadas em cultura. Abaixo leia mais detalhes sobre a exposição, informação do site da National Gallery - link abaixo: "In 1636 the artist Frans Post (1612–80) travelled to Brazil under the patronage of Governor Johan Maurits of Nassau. At this time, a large area of north-eastern Brazil was a Dutch colony. Post spent seven years drawing the exotic flora and fauna of Brazil. The country continued to inspire him when he returned to the Netherlands in 1644. Recently discovered at the Noord-Hollands Archief in Haarlem, 34 coloured drawings of exotic animals will be complemented by the National Gallery of Ireland’s magnificent, Brazilian Landscape with a Sugar Mill by Post, which depicts a Dutch sugar plantation with alligators, armadillos, anteaters and a monkey in the foreground. Other key works will be shown, including Post’s View of Olinda, Brazil (Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam), and Sugar Mill (Atlas Van Stolk, Rotterdam). The exhibition will provide a rare opportunity to view a remarkable group of drawings by a Dutch seventeenth-century artist together with some of his important painted Brazilian views. Curator: Niamh MacNally, National Gallery of Ireland. The exhibition is kindly supported by the Friends of the National Gallery of Ireland."
