Jervis Bay by Louis Auguste de Sainson

Jervis Bay by Louis Auguste de Sainson

Before Cameras
Many of the early explorers carried their own artists to record the many new sites and people they came across on their travels.
One of those was the French artist Louis Auguste de Sainson.
He has many many paintings and drawings and was aboard the Astrolabe when it arrived in Jervis bay in 1826.
Here is one of many paintings he did that depicts the area called Hole in the Wall.
Erosion has now collapsed the roof of the arch.

You can see many fine paintings of the region within the Museum and a superbly detailed model of the Astrolabe.
