Description:

A View of the Harbour of Huaheine (Fare), one of the Society Islands, with Resolution and native craft in the bay. Cook had a house built here for the returning native Omai.

John Webber (1752 - 1793)

Official artist on Cook's third and last voyage. The reasons for the voyage were to return Omai and explore the possibility of a north-west passage along the North American continent. Webber was required to "give a more perfect idea thereof than can be formed by written description." Webber's oeuvre from the voyage was the most comprehensive record of sights in the Pacific region ever produced.
