Antoine Maurin

1793 – 1860

Antoine Maurin, lithographer, is little known. He was born in Perpignan, France, and died in Paris. The National Gallery of Australia has two examples of his work: one a portrait of commander JSC Dumont D'Urville (c.1833), printed by Alfred Lemercier, the other an image of natives of Van Diemen's Land, printed by Maurin and Lemercier after an image by Niel. The National Library of Australia holds several examples of Maurin's work, including a portrait of James Cook, and many portraits of Indigenous peoples of Australia and the Pacific Islands. The National Portrait Gallery acquired his portrait of D'Entrecasteaux in 2009.
