Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Charles Landseer  was a painter, draughtsman and engraver.  He began his artistic apprenticeship with his father, the engraver and archaeologist John Landseer (1769 - 1852), perfecting his technique with the painter Benjamin Robert Haydon (1786 - 1846).

In 1816, he entered the Royal Academy of Arts, in London. The artist joined the diplomatic mission headed by the English ambassador Charles Stuart, which went to Brazil in 1825 to negotiate the terms of recognition of the independence of the country, where he remained for slightly more than a year.

He executed some 300 drawings and watercolours, registering scenes from daily life observed on trips around Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Bahia and Pernambuco.

Upon returning to London, the artist devoted himself to historical and genre paintings. Between 1851, and 1873, he became the principal instructor of the Royal Academy of Arts. The set of his works executed in Brazil, which remained in the possession of Charles Stuart, comprises the Highcliffe Album, which also includes drawings by the French painter Debret (1768 - 1848), and by the English artists William John Burchell (1781 - 1863), and Henry Chamberlain (1796 - 1844).

Landseer's works were located in 1924 by the historian Alberto Rangel, who together with Candido Guinle de Paula Machado, published a book Landseer in 1972.  In 1999, the Highcliffe Album was incorporated into the collection of the Moreira Salles Institute.
