Trinkfest der COROADOS

after Heinrich Rudolf SCHINZ

(Zurich 1777 - 1861)

“Trinkfest der COROADOS”

(a fest of natives from the South eastern part of Brazil)
Original lithograph from the graphic kit of the work “Naturgeschichte und Abbildungen der Menschen und der Saugetiere” printed by the swiss lithographer Honegger and published in Zurich between 1830 and 1835.
Nice example printed on wove paper, with small foxing spots more accentuated at the edges, otherwise in good general condition, embellished with a bright and accurate recent watercolouring..
Beautiful representation of a group of inatives drinking from a big bowl placed in the middle while a chief with his traditional head decoration plays a musical instrument.
The Coroados were an indigenous group of south eastern Brazil and especially Mato Grosso, they used to round their hats in the center of the head and to wear crowns of bird feathers.
The name comes from Portuguese and means “Crowned”.
