Some painters were so multi-talented as artists and great minds that one involuntarily wonders when and where they actually had time to paint. Benedito Calixto de Jesus, a painter from Brazil, is featured on the Portuguese Wikipedia page as "Painter, Draftsman, Photographer, Historian, Decorator, Cartographer and Amateur Astronomer" - almost a universal scholar of his time. Born in Itanháem near Sao Paulo in 1853, he did not attend the "Imperial Academy of Fine Arts" in Rio de Janeiro like most artists of his time; Calixto was a self-taught artist and always remained connected to his home region of Sao Paulo. He lived in the port city of Santos since 1881 and was (long before the era of footballer Pelé) the most famous inhabitant.

Benedito Calixto mainly painted city and landscape pictures, he had a soft spot for ordinary people in traditional or festive clothing. His most famous works, however, are devoted to historical or historical subjects. These include "The proclamation of the republic", which shows the ceremony at the moment of the salute shots (Emperor Pedro II was overthrown by a military coup in 1889) and "The shipwreck of the SS Sirio", which shows a group of priests praying amid desperate people. Around 190 people, mostly Italian emigrants on the way to Argentina, died on this ship near Cartagena (Spain) in 1906. A group of Catholic dignitaries (including the Brazilian archbishops of Sao Paulo and Porto Alegre) behaved exemplary, blessing the passengers and paying for their endurance in part, while the captain and parts of the crew took themselves to safety at the first opportunity. The catastrophe was never forgotten in Italy, the last time it was discussed in 2012 on the occasion of the "Costa Concordia affair".

Calixto's portraits of historical figures were also very popular. His masterpieces include those of Domingos Jorge Velho (one of those fortune-seekers who discovered and conquered the hinterland of Sao Paulo around 1700) and Martim Alfonso de Sousa (founder of the first settlement not far from Sao Paulo and first governor of Brazil for the Portuguese crown) or the statesman and mineralogist José Bonifácio Andrade e Silva.

As befits its name (it means "Jesus blessed chalice" in German), religious issues were the third pillar of the Benedito Calixto de Jesus. Calixto died in Sao Paulo in 1927 at the age of 76. © Meisterdrucke
