The Clark Research and Academic Program – Colonial Art and Architecture in Brazil with Andre Tavares

This presentation offers a view on the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries’ artistic heritage in what is now independent Brazil. It underlines regional variations on the adaptation of the Portuguese artistic models and presents a chronology of relevant artwork. In parallel with some milestones of the political and territorial organization of the then called Portuguese America, we will briefly discuss the features of Brazilian artistic geography and the role that colonial art played in the creation of a national narrative for the Brazilian History of Art.
