Church Building in Brazil, Frans Jansz. Post, 1675 - 1680

olieverf op paneel, h 16.5cm × w 25cm. More details

This painting is known as ‘The House of a Dutch Colonist in Brazil’; it is more likely, however, that it represents a Franciscan monastery or church building. Among the six figures on the grounds is a Dutch couple. The building does not have any Dutch features, but is constructed according to Portuguese-Brazilian architectural traditions.
