Jean-Baptiste Debret

DebretDebret studied at the French Academy of Fine Arts. His debut was at the Salon of the Beaux Arts of 1798, where he got the second prize.

He travelled to Brazil in March 1816 as a member of the so-called French Artistic  Mission, a group of bonapartist French artists and artisans bound to creating in Rio de Janeiro an arts and crafts Lyceum (Escola Real de Artes e Ofícios) under the auspices of  king D. João VI . He established his atelier at the Imperial Academy in December 1822 and became a valued teacher in 1826. In 1829 , he organized the first arts exhibition ever to take place in Brazil.

He was interest in the  everyday life in Brazil and, he started to sketch street scenes, local costumes and relations of the Brazilians in the period between200px-Pelourinho 1816 and 1831. He took a particular interest in slavery of blacks and in the indigenous peoples in  Brazil. Together with the German painter Johann Moritz Rugendas, his work is one of the most important graphic documentation of life in Brazil during the early decades of the 19th century.

Debret returned to France in 1831 and became a member of the Academie de Beaux Arts. From 1834 to 1839 he published his monumental series of three volumes of engravings, titled Voyage Pittoresque et Historique au Brésil. Unfortunately the work was not a commercial success and Debret died poor in Paris in 1848.

To celebrate the 450th anniversary of Rio de Janeiro, Espaço Cultural dos Correios will host from March 4th up to May 3rd  the  exposition called “Rio de Janeiro de  Debret “where the public will be able to see  120 original works from the Castro Maya Museum collection. The watercolors and drawings from the period  from 1816 to 1831 focuses on Rio landscape, in everyday life, customs and popular types from the early nineteenth century.

According to Anna Paola Baptista, curator of the exhibition “Debret is the greatest chronicler” of Brazil’s life in the first half of the nineteenth century. He accompanied and visually documented the transition from one mode of colonial life into an independent nation.

200px-Debret15aRio’s watercolours shows, even in its composition, the integrated approach of the artist to its object. It is striking the feeling of intimacy and proximity to the image portrayed emanating from their city watercolors, almost as if the point of view of observation came from the interior of the scene. Although dominated by the human figure, usually in the foreground, the works have a cast of architectural features, interior, clothing, customs, leisure, public entertainment or religious.
