Additional information

For a brief period in the 17th century, the Dutch colonized a portion of Brazil, as depicted in landscape imagery by Frans Post. Join curatorial research associate Susan Anderson for a look at his etching View of Olinda within the context of Dutch global activities and an explosion of local landscape production. Anderson will examine Post’s work alongside contemporary Brazilian art engaged with nature.
