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.
