JOSE FERRAZ DE ALMEIDA JR. Brasilian painter.

José Ferraz de Almeida Júnior (8 May 1850 - 13 November 1899) was a major Brazilian painter whose works became a source of inspiration for subsequent modernists. As a painter, he defied the popular traditions of his contemporaries and carved a new niche for himself. At a time when his fellow painters were achieving fame by painting mythological and historical subjects, he decided to focus on reality and portray the beauty of rural life. The subjects he chose to paint were an unchartered territory, but his skill ensured that the gamble paid off.
