One of the most famous depictions of the death of Captain James Cook in Hawaii, painted by the official artist of his third voyage. Like the painting of John Cleveley the Younger, it shows the explorer with one hand raised in an attempt to stop his men firing on the Hawaiians, his back to his killer. This is a French edition, engraved by Claude-Mathieu Fessard.
