Lot Essay

Wiegandt was born in Germany and studied in Munich. He travelled to Brazil in 1875 and produced views of Rio de Janeiro and its environs until returning to Germany in 1880. Renate Löschner records that his Brazilian work was known through reproductions in Princess Therese of Bavaria's Reisewerk (R. Löschner, Deutsche Kunstler in Lateinamerika, Berlin, 1978, p. 24)
