Piron was a member of the French expedition which sailed to discover the fate of La Pérouse, and the first French artist to visit New Zealand. An account of the voyage illustrated by Piron was published by the naturalist Labillardière, the only pictorial record of the visit to New Zealand being a painting, Man and Woman of New Zealand.
