Painter & Naturalist - A Forgotten Treasure

$79.95

On 19 October 1800, Charles-Alexandre Lesueur set sail on a voyage of discovery to the Southern Lands led by Nicolas Baudin. He soon demonstrated his talents as a natural history artist. Driven by an insatiable curiosity, during a golden age for natural history and learned societies, he travelled constantly throughout his life. His sketchbooks and vellums provide a record of the animals, landscapes and indigenous people he encountered.
