Description:

Rondel from the title page of Peron’s account of the French voyage of exploration under the command of Nicholas Baudin in the ships the Geographe and Naturalist. Depicts Chateau de Malmaison, Josephine’s large estate which transformed into  ‘the most beautiful and curious garden in Europe, a model of good cultivation’. She located rare and exotic plants and animals to enhance the gardens.

Charles Alexander Lesueur (1778 - 1846)

French natural history and topographical artist on board the lavishly equipped scientific expedition prepared by the Institut de France with the ambitions to explore the southern parts of the Eastern Hemisphere, in two corvettes, Geographe and the Naturaliste. Lesueur was taken on not as an artist or scientist but as an assistant gunner. Nichloas Baudin the commander of the expedition soon discovered Lesueur's talents and employed him as an illustrator for his private journal. His prolific output and the quality of his drawings during this important voyage is a testament to his artistic talents.
