The 'Resolution' in the Marquesas, 1774
The landscape painter William Hodges, who trained under Richard Wilson, accompanied Captain Cook on his second voyage to the South Pacific 1772-1775 with a brief to record the places visited. While some of the smaller of his remarkable landscape paintings were painted on the voyage, most were painted afterwards in London, many for the Admiralty. Many of his finished drawings, as well as sketches which were the basis for more formal ones for later engraving in the official voyage account, were almost certainly made on the voyage.
