He travelled on one of the most significant voyages ever made, with Matthew Flinders on his circumnavigation of Australia (1801-1803). His paintings of this and other journeys are treasured in museums and libraries in Liechtenstein, Oxford, Gottingen, Vienna and London. This book is the first monograph regarding the artists Australian voyage. Drawing on both the English and Austrian collections, it reproduces all of Bauer¿s known letters in translation.
