A Reconstruction of all 20 panels


I have re-constructed the panels of the scenic wallpaper “Les Sauvages De La Mer Pacifique” (The Savages of the South Pacific) also known as “The Voyages of Captain Cook” from images at the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, deYoung Museum, http://search.famsf.org (search Charvet).

The scene is loosely based on reports from James Cook, La Pérouse, and other travellers. It was designed and painted by Jean Gabriel Charvet for publisher Joseph Dufour in Macon, France.

For more information see my previous article [Cook’s Log, page 1827, vol. 24, no. 2 (2001)].
