A timeless neoclassical depiction of the Caroline islands

A famous portrait of a man and woman of the Caroline islands, depicted in high neoclassical style. This engraving is derived from the original drawing of Jacques Arago, the official artist on Louis de Freycinet's expedition in the Uranie of 1817-1820. After visiting Western Australia, the voyage sailed north to Timor, and from there launched into the north Pacific, mapping and charting the Marianas and Caroline island groups in the process. The Freycinet expedition is renowned as a pinnacle of French scientific exploration in the early nineteenth-century.
