Watercolourist and marine draughtsman. Arago was employed on Louis de Freycinet's officially-sponsored French expedition around the world aboard the Uranie in 1817-20.

watercolourist and marine draughtsman, was born in Estagel, near Perpignan, France. He, Taunay and Pellion were the artists and draughtsmen employed on Louis de Freycinet’s officially-sponsored French expedition around the world aboard the Uranie in 1817-20. Arago wrote a series of letters to a friend giving an account of the voyage, published as Promenade autour du Monde (Paris 1822), which included three plates on Australian subjects and an atlas. The introduction by M. Gerard to the English translation, Nar rative of a Voyage round the World (London 1823), stated that Arago’s collection of drawings was 'one of the most remarkable that has been seen, both for the number and variety of the subjects. It offers the strongest proof of the unwearied zeal and remarkable intelligence of M. Arago, the draftsman to the expedition. It consists of about five hundred drawings representing landscapes, views of the coasts, the subjects of zoology and botany, also a considerable series of drawings of the natives of the different islands at which the expedition touched, their costume, their habits and weapons’. The Uranie left France in September 1817 and sailed via the Cape of Good Hope to Shark Bay in Western Australia, arriving on 12 September 1818. Arago’s Encounter with the Natives depicts a member of the ship’s company offering trinkets and clothing to the Aborigines while Arago himself performs on the castanets. Leaving Shark Bay on 27 September, the ship sailed via Timor and the Sandwich Islands to Sydney, where it remained from 19 ...
