Painting of a Black Brazilian woman and child, probably slaves, by Dutch artist Albert Eckhout, completed in 1641 and currently held at the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen. Invited to the short-lived Dutch colony of Niew Holland in Brazil at the behest of its governor, John Maurice of Nassau, Eckhout produced a number of paintings featuring African slaves, members of the region’s indigenous Tupinamba tribe, tropical landscapes, and various still lives of fruits and animals native to the area.
