BATISTA, Eduardo Luis Araújo de Oliveira. Iconografia tropical: motivos locais na arte colonial brasileira. An. mus. paul. [online]. 2017, vol.25, n.1, pp.359-401. ISSN 0101-4714.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1982-02672017v25n0113.

This paper studies the visual representation of local nature in the sacred art developed during the colonial period of Brazilian history. In this period, between the XVIth and the XVIIIth centuries, the visual arts in the country evolved in the context of the Baroque introduced by Catholic missionaries. It was in the decoration of the churches in which the first representations of aspects of local nature, mostly the tropical fruits, appeared in Brazilian visual arts, producing new combinations together with the traditional European phytomorphic ornamentation of acanthus leaves and grapes. This research draws upon texts written by travellers and missionaries during the period to demonstrate how the Europeans interpreted and represented tropical nature and used these representations as part of the Catholic preaching strategy by means of moral and religious allegorization of the New World nature.
