The Art of Science: Baudins Voyagers 1800 - 1804

Opens 07-04-2017, closes 09-07-2017

Argyle Galleries 1-3

Nicolas Baudins ships, Geographe and Naturaliste, embarked from Le Havre in October 1800 for the southern continent, carrying an impressive contingent of scientists and scientific assistants.

Lavishly funded by Napoleon Bonaparte, the expeditions agenda was the discovery and study of natural sciences, underpinned by the emergence of new ideas and philosophies of reason and the rights of man.

This exhibition will showcase original sketches and paintings created by Baudins artists Charles-Alexandre Lesueur and Nicolas-Martin Petit during the voyage of 1800-1804.

It will bring a fabulous collection of the original paintings and drawings from the Museum of Natural History in Le Havre, France to Hobart audiences for the first time.
