The portrait of the oppressed people who line the lines of Fyodor Dostoevsky gained visual expression in the hand of several artists throughout history, with different contours and interpretations. Some of the most outstanding ones were made by the Brazilian born in Rio de Janeiro Oswaldo Goeldi, who underlined all the anguish and crudeness of the characters of Dostoyevsky, considered the father of Realism, through a technique well known in Brazil, woodcut (art and technique of embossing on wood).
The exhibition, curated by Lani Goeldi, brings together illustrations by Oswaldo Goeldi produced for four books by the Russian writer Fyodor Dostoevsky published between the years of 1944 and 1953. The works capture the essence of each novel, portraying the daily life of the described characters and are considered an important contribution to the writer’s iconography. In addition to the prints and drawings, the exhibition displays the original books illustrated by the artist.
