The painters Johann Moritz Rugendas (1802-1858), Ferdinand Beller Bellermann (1814-1889) and Eduard Hildebrandt (1818-1869) traveled extensively throughout Central and South America, following in the footsteps of Alexander von Humboldt. In the travel sketches and nature studies created on-site, Humbolts representations of the American sub-continent bring about a Europe-wide fascination. The painters create a diverse and authentic picture of the landscapes, flora and fauna, places, people, manners, and customs of the regions which they roamed. The noticeably painful histories of the painters following the death of Humboldt are also represented in this catalog. German text.
