Albert Eckhouts Indianerbilder aus Nordbrasilien und die holländische Kolonialpolitik

Obermeier, Franz

A matéria mostra a importância histórico-social da qual se reveste obra de Albert Eckhout. Fora êle incumbido pelo Príncipe Maurício de Nassau a representar gracamente a terra e o povo brasileiros. Pelo fato do Príncipe de Nassau ter em vista não sómente a conquista e ocupação, mas efetivamente a colonização e aculturação dos povos nativos com a sociedade colonial da Holanda na época, a obra de Eckhout constitui um depoimento iconográco e social.

The text centers on the social and historical impact of Albert Eckhout`s paintings. Eckhout was the artist who, according to Count Mauricio of Nassau's orders, was to portray the Brazilian people and their country. Considering that Nassau's concern was not only conquest and oc- cupation, but the natives' colonization and adaptation to Holland's colonial project of those years, Eckhout's Work is unequalled in terms of its visual and social design.
