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