Paper long abstract:

The Brazil-Portugal was an illustrated magazine (1899-1914) aimed particularly at the approach of the Luso-Brazilian relations in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century. The 4th centenary of the discovery of Brazil was the occasion to carry out their cultural intermediary functions between Brazil and Portugal. The publication of an extraordinary number specially produced for this time allows the analysis of multiple images of the Luso-Brazilian relationship.
