Landscape in Brazil, Frans Jansz Post, 1652

Landscape in Brazil, Frans Jansz Post, 1652

oil on canvas, h 282.5cm × w 210.5cm. More details

This is Post’s largest painting. It features a wide river landscape with a distant sugar plantation, glimpsed as if seen through a ‘window’. A spot-backed puffbird is illusionistically painted as if perched on the frame, and the artist also depicted a grasshopper and an iguana hidden among the exotic Brazilian plants and fruits.

On display in room 2.10 Frans Jansz. Post
