William Hodges was a promising but young and rela-tively unaccomplished painter. As the first professional landscapepainter to document a voyage of exploration, Hodges was cast into aparadoxical situation. For although he had been trained, under RichardWilson, to paint idealized compositions in the classical landscape tradi-tion, the explicitly scientific orientation of Cook’s expedition empha-sized empiricism rather than idealization.
