Rebecca Parker Brienen - Visions of Savage Paradise: Albert Eckhout, Court Painter in Colonial Dutch Brazil
Published: 2007-05-15 | ISBN: 9053569472 | PDF | 288 pages | 7.17 MB


Visions of Savage Paradise is the first major book-length study of seventeenth-century Dutch artist Albert Eckhout to be published in nearly seventy years. Eckhout, who was court painter to the colonial governor of Dutch Brazil, created life-size paintings of Amerindians, Africans, and Brazilians of mixed race in support of the governor’s project to document the people and natural history of the colony. In this study, Rebecca Parker Brienen provides a detailed analysis of Eckhout’s works, framing them with discussions of both their colonial context and contemporary artistic practices in the Dutch republic.
