Portrait of an Aboriginal man

LESUEUR, Charles Alexandre.

Nouvelle-Hollande. Cour-Rou-Bari-Gal.
Paris: Langlois, 1811. 245 x 315mm.

An Aboriginal man with his hair wrapped in paperbark strips, who told the French artist Nicolas-Martin Petit who was sketching him that his name was 'Cour-rou-bari-gal'. As Booragy or Burroggy was the Aboriginal name for Bradleys Head, it is likely that he had replied to the artist's question 'What is your name?' with kuri (man) and Boregegal (Bradleys Head Clan).
