THE BAUDIN EXPEDITION to Australia 1800-1804:
An extraordinary collection of original art by
Nicolas-Martin Petit and Charles-Alexandre Lesueur.

To be offered by Auction: 28 November, 2018 Melbourne
by
Deutscher and Hackett in association with Hordern House
We are delighted to bring to your attention an exceptional catalogue of highly important works of art by Nicolas-Martin Petit (1777-1804) and Charles-Alexandre Lesueur (1778-1846).
The richness of these outstanding works is fully described and illustrated in the accompanying catalogue, researched and compiled by Hordern House. This remarkable collection was until quite recently unknown and unrecorded.
Of significant cultural importance, these portraits and views by the two main artists on Nicolas Baudin’s monumental voyage of exploration in Australia over the years 1801 and 1802 will rewrite the history of early Australian voyage art.
