Great emka 2022-03-16 16:02

Hello Jorge, Nice picture of this monument but the note is most interesting. I do not know anything about the history of Brazil, so I read your notes with a big interest. As I remember, Lagos in Portugal was the place from where the slaves were sent. A black period in history. I read on Wikipedia about Machado de Assis and indeed, he is regarded as a black writer. I also remember that Brazil is a quite unique mixture of even four races, and there are special names for the per cent of each race.
I like this original column very much.
Best regards MAlgo

PS. The parents of Machado were Francisco Jos de Assis, the son of freed slaves, and Maria Leopoldina da Cmara Machado, a Portuguese washerwoman from the Azores. So it was a father who was black.

Default To emka: error of memory

malgo

thanks for the note explaining the mother was portuguese, not the father. I guess I did that because in the case of Aleijadinho the father is really the portuguese.

take care

I read also about Aleijadinho. The funny thing in Wikipedia is that there is a controversy if he has ever existed. But then, who was the author of the sculptures?

Default Aleijadinho

Malgo

Aleijadinho, o mestre do barroco mineiro, era uma figura que no deixou muitos registros de sua passagem pelo mundo, deixou alguns recibos de trabalhos feitos. ---- Alguns dizem que muitas obras dele foram feitas por alunos dele (como rembrandt e Da Vinci), para piorar, quando ele se tornou famoso no comeo do sculo 20, muitos antiqurios contrataram artistas para falsificar as obras dele.

um abrao
