Captain James Cook
The Second Voyage 1772 - 1775

A series of marine paintings by Robin Brooks

Antarctic Regions, Icebergs and Penguins

The series was begun in 1982, and each subject has been carefully researched. The inspiration for the paintings has in most cases come directly from extant records such as the Journals and Logs of the officers and men who sailed with Cook.

The photographic archive of the series of paintings is unfortunately incomplete. The examples shown here are more or less in chronological order. Further paintings will be added to the collection as they become available.
