Description:

Scarce engraving depicting Mount Tarawera after the eruption in 1886.

Shortly after midnight on the morning of 10 June 1886, a series of more than 30 strong earthquakes were felt in the Rotorua area and by 2:45 am Mount Tarawera’s three peaks had erupted, blasting three distinct columns of smoke and ash thousands of metres into the sky. At around 3.30 am, the largest phase of the eruption commenced; vents at Rotomahana produced a pyroclastic surge that destroyed several villages within a 6 kilometer radius, and the Pink and White Terraces appeared to be obliterated.

From the original edition of the Illustrated London News.

He settled in Auckland and visited the Hot Lakes district. He painted the Pink and White Terraces before and after the Mount Tarawera eruption.
