- 1793 - 1800
- Piron, Jean, active 1791-1794
Head and shoulders portraits of a bearded Maori man (on the left) and of a young Maori boy. Both have ear adornments and hair in a topknot and the older man has a flax garment beneath his chest.
Piron visited New Zealand in 1793 under the command of Bruny d'Entrecasteaux. No women came out to the ships during the brief visit so the right-hand figure, although appearing female at first glance, is, in fact, a man.
