A presentation of a selection of works from the collection of the National Historical Museum (Rio de Janeiro, RJ). The exhibition constitutes an addition to the series of exhibitions held at the Pinacoteca that compose the Collections in Dialogue program, centered on bringing the Pinacoteca’s collection into confrontation with works coming from other related institutions, thus expanding and renewing the interpretation possibilities of the museum’s collection proper. Organized around four main axes – Colonial Art, History Painting, War Landscapes and Art and Heritage –, the exhibition reveals the similarities and differences in the collection policies of each institution.
