The art of captain cook's voyages: volume 1, the voyage of the endeavour, 1768-1771 by joppien rudige - Art of Captain Cook s Voyages | Yale University Press


Although Captain Cook's mission to New Zealand and Australia didn't involve colonisation, the legacy of his voyage aboard the Endeavour , and of what came after, has been far-reaching. Merata Kawharu examines Cook's impact on Maori culture.

Captain Cook's voyages around the globe took him to remote parts - to the Pacific Island nations and to Aotearoa New Zealand (Aotearoa is Maori for 'Land of the Long White Cloud', an earlier name for New Zealand given by the Polynesian explorer Kupe, upon discovery of these lands about 1,000 years ago). Cook's arrival offered immediate benefits, both for the weary European travellers and for the Maori in New Zealand. Both parties, eager to capitalise on the opportunities offered by the arrival of the newcomers, traded material items, ideas, values and worldly information with each other.

The voyages themselves... had a more immediate impact on the Maori than on other indigenous peoples of the Pacific region...

The word tattoo , or tattow in the 18th century, is a loanword from the Samoan word tatau , meaning "to strike". [1] [2] The Oxford English Dictionary gives the etymology of tattoo as "In 18th c. tattaow, tattow. From Polynesian (Samoan, Tahitian, Tongan, etc.) tatau. In Marquesan, tatu." Before the importation of the Polynesian word, the practice of tattooing had been described in the West as painting, scarring, or staining. [3]

This is not to be confused with the origins of the word for the military drumbeat or performance — see military tattoo . In this case, the English word tattoo is derived from the Dutch word taptoe . [4]

The first written reference to the word tattoo (or tatau ) appears in the journal of Joseph Banks (24 February 1743 – 19 June 1820), the naturalist aboard explorer Captain Cook 's ship the HMS Endeavour : "I shall now mention the way they mark themselves indelibly, each of them is so marked by their humour or disposition". The word tattoo was brought to Europe by Cook, when he returned in 1769 from his first voyage to Tahiti and New Zealand . In his narrative of the voyage, he refers to an operation called "tattaw".

Captain James Cook FRS (7 November 1728 [NB 1]  – 14 February 1779) was a British explorer, navigator, cartographer, and captain in the Royal Navy . Cook made detailed maps of Newfoundland prior to making three voyages to the Pacific Ocean, during which he achieved the first recorded European contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and the Hawaiian Islands , and the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand .

Cook joined the British merchant navy as a teenager and joined the Royal Navy in 1755. He saw action in the Seven Years' War , and subsequently surveyed and mapped much of the entrance to the Saint Lawrence River during the siege of Quebec . This helped bring Cook to the attention of the Admiralty and Royal Society . This notice came at a crucial moment in both Cook's career and the direction of British overseas exploration, and led to his commission in 1766 as commander of HM Bark  Endeavour for the first of three Pacific voyages.

In three voyages Cook sailed thousands of miles across largely uncharted areas of the globe. He mapped lands from New Zealand to Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean in greater detail and on a scale not previously achieved. As he progressed on his voyages of discovery he surveyed and named features, and recorded islands and coastlines on European maps for the first time. He displayed a combination of seamanship, superior surveying and cartographic skills, physical courage and an ability to lead men in adverse conditions.

John Webber was official artist to Captain James Cook on Cook’s third and final voyage to the Pacific on the Resolution from 1776. His task was to provide topographical drawings as well as illustrations of the people, animals and plants they encountered.

The outcome of Webber’s work, however, was not purely an art of information. When he returned to England, he embellished his South Seas sketches into a series of images that owe much to his imagination – paintings of heightened atmosphere and idealised picturesque forms. (He also produced one of the best known portraits of Cook , now in Australia’s National Portait Gallery.)

His 1783 painting A view of Otaheite Peha is one of a number of works he made of the Tahitian landscape. Tahiti held popular appeal in 18th-century Britain as a distant, exotic and idyllic land, and Webber’s paintings fuelled these Western myths. He combined imagery from the voyage with idealised elements of British pastoral painting to give an impression of majestic mountains standing guard over the blissful existence of the indigenous people below.
