FAMOUS COOK ISLANDER

CAPTAIN COOK
Captain James Cook, FRS, RN (7 November 1728[NB 1] – 14 February 1779) was a British explorer, navigator, cartographer, and captain in the Royal Navy. Cook made detailed maps of Newfoundland prior to making three voyages to the Pacific Ocean, during which he achieved the first European contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, and the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand.

New Zealand-based Cook Islander artists include MICHEL TUFFREY, print-maker DAVID TEATA, RICHARD SHORTLAND COOPER, SYLVIA MARSTERS and JIM VIVIEAERE.
