    HistoryBarthelemy Lauvergne was the senior artist on board the French corvette LA FAVORITE which completed a circumnavigation between 1830 - 1832 on behalf of the "July Monarchy" government. Under the command of Captain Cyril Pierre Laplace, the purpose of the voyage was to secure French commercial interests in Indo-China and the South Pacific. The route the expedition followed took in Pondichery, Madras, Singapore and Manilla, as well as Sydney, Tasmania and New Zealand before crossing the South Pacific to Chile and subsequently home to Toulon (France) around Cape Horn and via Rio de Janeiro.
