Meirelles de Lima, Victor (Brazilian painter, 1832-1903)

Note: Victor Meirelles de Lima began his artistic studies around 1838 with the Argentine engineer, Marciano Moreno. In 1847 he moved to Rio de Janeiro and enrolled at the Academia Imperial de Belas Artes [Imperial Academy of Fine Arts] where, in 1849, he began a course in historical painting. In 1852 he won the foreign travel prize and went to Italy in the following year. In Rome, in 1854, he attended the lectures of Tommaso Minardi (1787-1871) and, subsequently, those of Nicola Consoni (1814-1884), with whom he did a series of live model studies. With the extension of his grant, he continued his studies in Paris and, in 1857, he enrolled at the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, attending the classes of Leon Cogniet (1794-1880), subsequently receiving guidance from the former's disciple, Andrea Gastaldi (1810-1889). He returned to Brazil in 1861. From 1886 onward, he devoted himself to creating panoramas of Rio de Janeiro.
