Lot Essay

The first subject relates to Taunay’s celebrated oils of La Glória (P. Corrêa do Lago, Taunay e o Brasil Obra Completa 1816-1821, São Paulo, 2008, nos. P-4, P-9, P-15). Corrêa do Lago also accepts a watercolour version of no. P-4, the only work on paper hitherto given to Taunay in Brazil (ibid., no. A-1, measuring 26.5 x 37 cm).
