Nicolau Facchinetti

Biography   Nicolau Facchinetti


After three years in Venice, Nicolau Faccinetti moved to Rio de Janeiro after the 1848-9 revolution.  He worked there first of all as a scene-painter for a theater.  In 1865 he earned his certificate as lecturer at the Imperial Academy in Rio.

From 1870 he turned to landscape painting, which he taught himself.  He was encouraged in this by Princess Isabel, daughter of King Pedro II.  Between 1880 and 1890 he developed his marine painters.  Facchinetti was a naturalistic painter of open-air school; the accuracy of his landscapes was of first importance to him, which is why he nearly always annotated his works with details of the precise time and place depicted.
