Nacional de Belas Artes Museum

Rio de Janeiro Fine Art National Museum

The collection of the National Museum of Fine Arts started with a group of paintings brought to Brazil by Dom Joao VI of Portugal, in 1808, and expanded a few years later with the collection put together by Joachin Lebreton, who commanded the French Artistic Mission, originating the country's most important art gallery. The museum's collection was enriched, of course, with important acquisitions throughout the XIX and XX centuries. The museum was officially created on January 13, 1937.
