CLEVELEY, James and John

CLEVELEY, James and John

Sons of shipwright in Deptford. James was carpenter on Resolution during Cook's third voyage to the South Seas, 1776–1780. During the cruise he made many sketches which were later used by his brother John for aquatints published by F. Jukes. One drawing is believed to be the most accurate portrayal of the death of Cook in Hawaii. John and another brother Robert were both well known marine painters. Represented: APL, Turnbull, Hocken.
