Description:

Small early map of the Pacific with Australian place names sourced from previous Dutch, English and French discoveries. The Tardieu family of mapmakers and engravers were important French publishers and a number of their maps show the close involvement they had with the Baudin expedition.

Mapmaker:

Pierre François Tardieu (1711 – 1771) 

Tardieu was a French engraver and cartographer, nephew of Nicolas-Henri Tardieu. Pierre Francois Tardieu was born around 1711 in Paris, son of Jean Tardieu. He was taught by his uncle, Nicolas Henri Tardieu. He is noted for two excellent engravings after Peter Paul Rubens, the Judgement of Paris and Persée et Andromache. He did much work on the engravings for the Fables de la Fontaine after drawings by Oudry. Tardieu’s wife, Marie-Anne Rousselet (1733-1826), was from the family of the engraver Gilles Rousselet and the sculptor Jean Rousselet, both of whom were members of the Academy. Marie-Anne made several engravings of historical and genre subjects, including Saint John the Baptist (1756) after Jean-Baptiste van Loo.
