The relationship between Petrópolis and its landscape has been a source of inspiration for artists since the earliest times when painters, designers, photographers, and writers traveled through these mountainous parts. "Petropolis is the place on earth that, perhaps more than any other, deserves to be called a terrestrial paradise." In the "verbal" picture painted by Carlos Augusto Taunay in his Picturesque Journey to Petrópolis (1862), we clearly see the superiority of nature whose exuberance enchanted travelers and emperors. This, therefore, will be the first dimension to be dealt with by the artists.
