The Artist -
George Raper (1769 – 1796) was an officer of the Royal Navy who accompanied the First Fleet to Australia. One of the first artists to record European settlement in Australia, George Raper used his natural talent to draw the flowers, plants and birds he observed in the South Seas. The subjects of Raper’s drawings were the birds, flowers and fish of Sydney Cove, Norfolk Island and Lord Howe Island. He also painted landscape views and Aboriginal artefacts.
