Une Femme De La Terre De Van-Diemen .
The impact of Captain Cook's explorations were vast at the time. They introduced new cultures, dismissed the existence of mythic continents, employeed the latest scientific methods, and laid the foundation for a new era of settlement and commerce. This print from the third and final expedition of Cook and his men was from a richly engraved French edition.
A hauntingly beautiful portrait of mother and child by John Webber, Official Photographer of the expedition which included Van Diemen's Land. Van Diemen was the original name used by most Europeans for the Island of Tasmania, now part of Australia.
