John Cleveley


James Cleveley, a carpenter on the Resolution on Cook's third voyage (1776-1780), made many sketches which were later recreated as watercolours by his brother John, and then reproduced as superb aquatints by Francis Jukes. One of the prints is regarded as the most accurate portrayal of Cook's death in Hawaii which James Cleveley had witnessed. This print is commonly known as “The Death of Cook”.
