HMS 'Resolution' off Cape Stephens with waterspout, May 1773
Hodges' paintings of the Pacific celebrate British exploration. He was appointed by the Admiralty to record the places discovered on Cook's second voyage, undertaken in the 'Resolution' and 'Adventure', 1772-1775. This painting, located between Dusky Bay and Queen Charlotte Sound, revolves around several incidents in May 1773. Departing from Hodges's topographical images of the voyage, it fuses continuous narrative, landscape, classical references and other diverse elements with personal experiences of the voyage. With topsails clewed, the 'Resolution' experiences the extreme weather conditions caused by waterspouts, off a rocky shore, centre left.
