Petropolis Imperial Palace: A Fine Art Print Canvas, from the Palace that turned into a museum about Brazil’s diversified culture and art.

Petropolis Imperial Palace: a Fine Art Print Canvas


Settled in the hills of the Serra dos Órgãos forests, Petropolis is a favorite wintertime vacation site.

The city was founded by Emperor Dom Pedro II and its name means “city of Pedro”, or Peter’s City even. It was the second city in Brazil to be built based on a project.

The weather and outskirts are fantastic and the main attraction is an impressive 19th-century construction of a palace:

The Imperial Museum, also known as Imperial Palace, is a history thematic memorial in the nostalgic center oPetropolisRio de Janeiro, Brazil.

It was formerly used as a Summer Palace for Emperor Dom Pedro II during the second half of the 19th century.

My Piece of Fine Art Print Canvas

I visited the museum for the first time in the early 80’s while vacationing in Rio de  Janeiro.

I was overwhelmed by that impressive piece of architecture and the beautiful surroundings of this well preserved Brazilian area and it was then, maybe, that I was first inspired to work on this fine art print canvas.

Petropolis is a nice mountain town with a colder weather that contrasts a lot with the typical really hot tropical climate of Rio de Janeiro we are so used to expect.

The nice mild weather, historic constructions, and Atlantic jungle vegetation are great attractive sites for tourists from all over the world.

The city is considered the safest place in Rio de Janeiro and in Brazil with a high human development index.

Petropolis is a place that I always consider moving to. Maybe I will some day in the not so long future.

      Hello, Paulo,

      Thank you for your kinf words. /// I hope you manage to come to Brazil. I am curious about your country.

      Yes, I do. The artist is me. 🙂 I digitaly painted that about on dec/2013 after a suggestion from my father’s.

      As far as I know, the building is in good condition and home of the Petropolis Imperial Museum that can be visited when you come here.

      Do you like historic museums?

    What a beautiful building. Have you ever been there? I have not been much into art until my nephew got accepted into a special arts school in out hometown, and I see all of his creations and he talks of the stories behind them and their inspiration.

    What would you call this type of painting? It looks very cool.

      Ah, yes, Christian. I spent some time in Rio de Janeiro which is not too far from Petropolis. /// Well fortunately art is like a trap. May take years, but, if you are lucky, it catches you without further notice. Enjoy it. It will bring more color and seasoning to your life.

      We brazilians have a very mixed up culture with influnence from all over the world

      Why don’t you come to Brazil for vacation someday? Its is full of beauty and you will be suprised and pleased (don’t mind me. I invite every one. kinda of a “bad” habit) 🙂

      Er, sorry Christian. I forgot to answer your final question. I’m not sure there is a cannon term for computer art yet. The term I prefer using is “Digital Fine Art”

    The colors on this print of artwork are so vibrant! I have never been to Brazil but have always wanted to go. This summer palace looks like it would be quite the sight to see. Do you know if the public is allowed to go inside?

    Thanks for sharing,

    • February 9, 2016 at 8:33 pm

      Thank you, Jess. /// Yes, visitis are allowed ever since they turned it into a museum. I bet you would love it…

    Beautiful art.

    When I first looked at this I thought it was a picture of one of the palaces attributed to Peter the Great in St. Petersburg, Russia.

    What kind of medium do you use for your art? Is it Photoshop, or do you use something else? Just curious.

    Thanks for sharing this, you do good work.

      Thank you very much, Ian.

      I usually use a few different programs and also, sometimes, I do some work “outside” the computer as well. Unfortunately, that one was done a couple of years ago and I donr remember it all. I’m positive that I used, at least, Corel Painter and Photoshop since those 2 are a must most of the time for me.

      Your question raises a question: Do you have any experience with art/photography software?
