Monuments on Easter Island
Hodges' paintings of the Pacific celebrate British exploration. He was appointed by the Admiralty to record the places discovered on Cook's second voyage, undertaken in the 'Resolution' and 'Adventure', 1772-1775. Hodges was sent ashore at Easter Island from 14 to 17 March 1774, to record and observe. In this dramatic landscape, there are hills on left and sea in distance. Several inhabitants of the island are visible in the middle distance. Squally weather conditions heighten the dramatic mood and the dark clouds on the right provide a powerful backdrop to the four highlighted stone figures standing starkly on a stone platform, looking seawards towards Vinapu Bay.
