Landing at Erramanga (Eromanga), one of the New Hebrides

Captain Cook was in the New Hebrides from 4 June to 13 September 1774, during which time he spent six weeks making a careful survey of the island group. This painting is an official record of the event, composed in London for engraving in the published account of the voyage, and has adopted the traditional mode of history painting. It is one of a group of panel paintings produced by Hodges for engraving for Cook's official account, published in 1777, four of which are 'landing' paintings, depicting encounters with islanders that were controversial because of their violent confrontation.

On 4 August 1774 Cook moored the Resolution off the coast of the island of Eromanga. Following apparently peaceful entreaties from the local inhabitants to come ashore, Cook and a party of marines embarked for the beach.
