Frans Post. Animals in Brazil

Discover Amsterdam

In collaboration with Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden, the Rijksmuseum presents from 7 October the exhibition ‘Frans Post. Animals in Brazil’. In 1636 the artist Frans Post travelled to the Dutch colony of Brazil. For seven years the Brazilian flora and fauna inspired many of his works of art. The Rijksmuseum is showing his Brazilian landscapes and preliminary sketches, along with dozens of stuffed animals. Thirty-four animal drawings by Post make their first public appearance. The Rijksmuseum will show how Frans Post encountered and immortalized this fascinating new world.
