Debret Rugendas and other artists depicted “in loco” a Brazil that was beingborn. They painted laundresses, peddlers, slaves, characters that live in thislush nature and receive, for the first time in America, an European court.We created a “crystal palace” and, in its transparent walls, we exposed themain issues painted by these artists.
