AIMÉ-ADRIEN TAUNAY

Where are Taunay’s works?

The drawings made by Aimé-Adrien Taunay during the circumnavigation trip led by Louis-Claude de Saulces de Freycinet between 1817-1820 are currently at the Australian National Maritime Museum, the National Gallery of Australia (NGA), the National Library of Australia and the Honolulu Museum of Arts (HMA). The approximately 150 drawings and watercolors made during the Langsdorff Expedition (1825-1828) were shipped to Russia, during the trip, in compliance with the contract, and they are kept at the Russian Academy of Sciences. Sparse works can be found for sale at some auctions.

Unfortunately, due to the ostracism faced by the whole expedition, the works produced by Taunay took time to be identified and recognized. Other works by the artist are kept in public and private collections in Brazil.
