Johann Moritz Rugendas (1802-1858) was a German artist and a descendant of the Augsburger artist family Rugendas. In 1821, he traveled to Brazil in order to experience and learn about the country, its fauna, flora as well as its inhabitants. His travel accounts were published in 1827 and also delighted Alexander von Humboldt. Rugendas‘ work is invaluable not only artistically, but also as a testament of his time.
