Almeida Júnior was one of Brazil's most important painters. His distinct talent for capturing the atmosphere of an environment in a painterly manner made his paintings world-famous. As a naturalist, he always deals with the life of the simple rural population of Brazil in his paintings and depicts their everyday life in a painterly manner. This is why Almeida Júnior's works are today an important testimony of the time. Many of his paintings hang in the most important art institutions of the country, such as the Museu Nacional de Belas Artes in Rio de Janeiro.

The painter was born in May 1850 in a small community in the state of São Paulo. His pronounced artistic talent was already evident at a young age. As a youth he already produced commissioned paintings for customers. Among them was the local priest Miguel Correa Pacheco, who commissioned various paintings with religious themes from Almeida. Enthusiastic about the boy's talent, the priest collects donations in his parish, which enabled Almeida Júnior to study at Brazil's most famous art school, the Academica Imperial de Belas Artes. At the age of 19, he finally left his home country and moved to Rio de Janeiro to begin his studies. His professors include Victor Meirelles, Pedro Americano and Jules Le Chevrel - great masters of painting.

1874 he receives his first award for his art. With the prize money he finances a trip to Europe, on which he collects many impressions. He returns to his home country and opens his first studio. He becomes involved as an art teacher in his home village Itu. In 1876, another happy coincidence in his life occurred. He meets Emperor Peter II, who is enthusiastic about the talented painter and finances his subsequent studies in Europe. In the same year Almeida set off for Europe again, with a scholarship of 300 francs per month in his pocket. He travelled via Rome to Paris, where he enrolled at the École Superieure des Beaux Arts. The art academy is located in the famous artists' quarter of Montmartre. Here he is taught by Lequien Fils and Alexandre Cabanel. The years in Paris inspired the painter enormously. He draws some of his most famous paintings like "The Flight to Egypt", "Brazilian Woodcutter" or "The Pause of the Model". Before his return to Brazil, he shows his collected works in his first solo exhibition at his art school. Soon after, he is allowed to participate in one of the largest art exhibitions in Brazil with his paintings. Later he works again in his own studio. Privately he begins an affair with his cousin's wife. After his death, Almeida Júnior was awarded the title "National Painter of Brazil" in 1899. © Meisterdrucke
