Exhibition at Rijksmuseum explores Frans Post's Brazilian flora and fauna

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 in the retinue of its governor, Johan Maurits of Nassau. 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 on special loan from the Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden.
