Page updated following an inquiry from the Explores Club, New York City, . “Laperouse at Botany Bay“, Australia.
Still more work to do though.The image needs changing.
It shows the painting unfinished.
It was posted in haste being the last painting I completed before going to Brussels to create the exhibition at the European Parliament were I showed 35 pictures.
In French too?
I’d also like to have the text translated into French so I can make an accompanying page and then visitors can choose the language they prefer.
Getting translations made is a problem and can be expensive… any suggestions?
I’ll change the images soon and add a ‘further reading’ page outlining some of the more interesting points, the yarn about how I discovered the true appearance of the ships and how I found myself holding the original chart of Botany Bay made by Captain James Cook, an awesome moment.
Here is a copy of the completed painting
I’ll post again when the finished picture and some of the story is in the web site meantime enjoy.
