Waterfall in Dusky Bay, April 1773
Hodges's 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. He developed this large painting after his return to England in 1775. The rainbow and waterfall were discovered when some of Cook's party sailed to an inlet from Dusky Bay in April 1773, to look at the natural landscape. This sight, perceived as 'one of Nature's most romantic Scenes', prompted them to name it Cascade Cove.
