The Kongouro from New Holland (Kangaroo)
'Kangaroo' and 'Dingo' were commissioned by Sir Joseph Banks (1743-1820), following his participation on Captain James Cook's first voyage to the Pacific (1768–1771), which was also the first British voyage devoted exclusively to scientific discovery. Banks is a major figure in the development of European natural history and was an important patron of science and the arts. Both paintings were executed by George Stubbs (1724-1806), the foremost animal painter in Britain during the 18th century, within two years of Banks' return.
