Talk: The Cook Map Sampler

August 21, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Taking the map sampler attributed to Elizabeth Cook, Captain Cook’s wife, as her starting point, New Zealand’s Vivien Caughley explores hemispherical map samplers of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Caughley explores how knowledge of the New World was assimilated, step by step, into the creative endeavours of an English woman who stayed behind.
