Description:

View of the meeting of Hawaiian chiefs with Dupetit-Thouars and his officers.

The Venus had anchored off Honolulu on 8 July 1837, having sailed from Calao to check on the existence of the island of St Paul, shown on some old charts which Dupetit-Thouars
decided did not exist. Upon arriving in Honolulu, Dupetit-Thouars became embroiled in the missionary controversy, as did all visitors from France. The Venus stayed in the Hawaiian Islands for two weeks before setting sail for the ‘Kruzenstern Reef’. Rare.

From Abel Dupetit-Thouars, Voyage Autour du Monde sur La Venus 1836-1839.

Artist:

Louis Jules Masselot (1815-1879)

Born in Roches-sur-Rognon

Abel Aubert Dupetit-Thouars (1836-1839)

Dupetit-Thouars joined the navy at the age of eleven, was appointed ‘asprant (midshipman) in 1808 and ‘enseigne’ in 1814. As a member of a patrician family (he was a nephew of Aristide Dupetit-Thouars who searched for La Perouse), the restoration of the monarchy aided his career and enabled him to become ‘lieutenant de vasseau’ in 1819, and ‘captaine de fregate’ in 1826. His reputation was further enhanced by his service in the expedition against Algiers. On 21st December 1836 he was issued instructions to sail the areas frequented by French whalers and offer assistance where required, and to assist French traders along the coasts of South and Central America, where commercial enterprise had been slow to take off.
