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. This is the catalogue to accompany the exhibition "Frans Post. Animals in Brazil", which runs from 7 October 2016 to 8 January 2017 in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 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. Thirty-four animal drawings by Post make their first public appearance. These completely unknown studies were recentely discovered at the Noord-Hollands Archief in Haarlem.
