EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the Page 3 Profile of the Island of St. Jago, Cape Verde Island, created by William Hodges between 1768 and 1775. The artwork is part of a collection housed in the Mitchell Library at the State Library of New South Wales. Hodges' intricate pencil, pen & ink, and wash drawing takes us on a visual journey to this enchanting island. The profile depicts an awe-inspiring landscape with its majestic mountains and sprawling landmasses. As we explore this topographic marvel, we are transported back to Captain Cook's Second Voyage (1772-1775), during which Hodges documented his observations through sketches and watercolors. The attention to detail in this piece is remarkable; it not only serves as a testament to Hodges' artistic talent but also highlights the importance of mapping and surveying during that era. This topographic profile offers valuable insights into the geographical features of St. Jago while providing a glimpse into eighteenth-century exploration. As we gaze upon this historic artwork, our imagination runs wild with thoughts of adventure and discovery. We can almost feel ourselves stepping foot on that distant shore, ready to embark on our own expedition through time and space. This print from Fine Art Finder allows us to appreciate both the beauty of nature captured by Hodges' skilled hand and the significance of scientific exploration during one of history's most fascinating periods - all within a single frame.
