The French ‘Lapérouse Expedition’ vanished mysteriously in Oceania in 1788.
Their last European contact was with the British ‘First Fleet’ at Botany Bay, #Australia.
Added to this web site, a splendid 2000 ish word read about “#Lapérouse The Count and the First Fleet” at Botany Bay a marine painting by Gordon Frickers measures 61 x 91 cm., 7.000, €, £ 6,200.
The first clues of the expeditions fate emerged 60 years later.
When I began this painting I could find no one who knew the true appearance of the ships as no contemporary paintings, models or plans were know to exist.
The objective was to put that right.
