View of the Province of Oparree [Pare], Island of Otaheite, with part of the Island of Eimeo [Moorea]
This panoramic view of Tahiti's northern shoreline and neighbouring islands is remarkably free in style. The placement of the islanders' canoe, cut off by the bottom edge, is very unusual and adds to the sense of vastness. This is probably the pendant to 'A View of the Monuments of Easter Island [Rapanui]' (BHC1795). Both are painted on panel and are of identical dimensions. Their extraordinarily free handling and broad brushwork may indicate that they were intended to be hung high, perhaps as over-doors.
