Exhibitions - Joseph Banks: A Great Endeavour

15th February until 11th May - Lincoln

The Collection and Usher Gallery bring together material associated with Captain Cook’s Endeavour voyage to celebrate the work of Lincolnshire man Sir Joseph Banks. Sir Joseph Banks was a naturalist, explorer and patron of learning, growing up in Lincolnshire and gaining a concern for the county’s countryside and rural affairs. His work will be explored and celebrated in an exhibition at The Collection and Usher Gallery. Joseph Banks is probably best known for accompanying James Cook on board the Endeavour on Cook’s classic first voyage to the Pacific Ocean between 1768 and 1771. During this voyage – which included observation of the transit of Venus at Tahiti, the first circumnavigation of the islands of New Zealand and the east coast of Australia – Banks collected and recorded information on both natural history and the society and culture of the indigenous peoples he encountered.
Thereafter as a scientist and adviser of the monarch and of ministers, Banks promoted the exchange of knowledge about flora, fauna and human cultures new to Europeans. No less significant, he planned geopolitical changes that continue to shape the world today, including the colonization of Australia, the exploration of Polynesia and increased trade and plant exchange with India.  On Banks’s return to England, an iconic portrait was completed of him as a Pacific Adventurer by the painter and founder member of the Royal Academy, Benjamin West. The portrait shows Banks surrounded by artefacts from the Endeavour voyage and it is this work that will form the centrepiece for the exhibition, with its many visual references to the places he visited, the peoples he met and the natural history and ethnological collections that he made.
