Auguste Morisot. Un pintor en el Orinoco, 1886-1887

This edition features sketches and watercolors of Venezuela’s exuberant fauna and flora as well as portraits and images depicting indigenous life, created by Auguste Morisot during his journey to the Orinoco between 1886 and 1887. Auguste Morisot was a French artist-explorer who produced beautiful documentation of his new surroundings. The sunsets and light effects depicted in his watercolor paintings were highly regarded by the Lyon School in France. The works reproduced in this book allow us to reconstruct his vision of Venezuela in the late 19th century.
