ROSSATO, Luciana. Imagens de Santa Catarina: arte e ciência na obra do artista viajante Louis Choris. Rev. Bras. Hist. [online]. 2005, vol.25, n.49, pp.175-195. ISSN 0102-0188.

The purpose of this article is to look into the artwork that has the Santa Catarina island as its main theme produced by the traveling artist Louis Choris from his passage by the region in 1815. The scientific expeditions had artists whose function was reproducing the specimens collected and also the landscapes of the regions visited. These images insert themselves in a long-time tradition of pictorial productions which mixed art and knowledge.

Keywords : Choris, L.; Image; Science.
