Date

Ref
C-082-094
Description

View from the water of several clusters of fenced in houses, a large Red Ensign flying from a flagpole, three men working near the shore, the mission boat with five men aboard, the rooves of other houses on the skyline to the left.

Based on an ink and wash drawing by Chazal, held in the Library, ref. no. C-082-093, in its turn based on an ink and wash drawing by Jules LeJeune, artist with Duperrey during his 1824 visit to the Bay of Islands. The original drawing lacks one of the men working on the foreshore and the buildings on the skyline appear to be tents, rather than houses, but the central buildings are essentially the same. The original drawing is in the Bibliotheque du Service Historique de la Marine, Vincennes, Paris. The Library has a photograph, neg 116134 1/2. The title is the same as Chazal's. The flag in the original drawing and in Chazal's redrawing appears to be a White Ensign, rather than a Red Ensign.

Prepared as the prototype aquatint illustration with Chazal's hand-colouring for plate 43, to Duperrey's Voyage autour du monde ... (Paris, 1826). This copy is the proof before lettering.

Exhibited in 'Two centuries of New Zealand landscape art' Exhibition at Auckland City Art Gallery, 2 February - 22 April 1990.
