Publisher's description: In 1858 Francois-Auguste Biard, a well-known sixty-year-old French artist, arrived in Brazil to explore and depict its jungles and the people who lived there. What did he see and how did he see it? In this book historian Ana Lucia Araujo examines Biard's Brazil with special attention to what she calls his "tropical romanticism": a vision of the country with an emphasis on the exotic.
