Brésil panoramique

papiers peints du XIXe siècle

Brazil in the nineteenth century attracted travelers and artists, such as the German cartoonist Johann Moritz Rugendas (1802-1858), who created about thirty lithographs, kept in the library of Mulhouse, illustrating the life of the Indians. Inspired by the work of Rugendas, the painter Jean Deltil (1791-1863) created, in 1831, for the manufacture of Jean Zuber, a panoramic wallpaper entitled Vues du Brésil, presented here thanks to the Museum of Art and History of Friborg. Thirty years later, another panoramic, Brazil, made in 1862 by Joseph Fuchs (1814-1888) for the Jules Desfossé factory, takes a different angle, exalting the tropical character of the country, through an idealized fauna and flora. It is part of the collections of the Rixheim Wallpaper Museum.
