Summary

  • The Thereza Christina Maria Collection consists of 21,742 photographs assembled by Emperor Pedro II and left by him to the National Library of Brazil. The collection covers a vast range of subjects. It documents the achievements of Brazil and the Brazilian people in the 19th century, as well as includes many photographs from Europe, Africa, and North America. This photograph by Albert Richard Dietze is part of a set of 53 numbered, signed, and dated photos, taken between 1869 and 1878, from the album Vues de l' intérieur de la province of Espirito Santo [Scenes from the interior of the Province of Espirito Santo] that was presented at the Universal Exposition of Paris in 1889. Dietze, a German immigrant to Brazil, recorded the early settlement of the state of Espirito Santo. Dietze asked the empress for financial assistance to publish the work in Europe, where it would create a favorable impression of Brazil and encourage immigration.
