Koapena, the formidable New Guinea chief of the Hood River region, south-east of Port Moresby, was painted in 1885 by the Russian scientist and artist Miklouho-Maclay. Koapena was known as "a great fighting chief, one of the finest men we have seen" (Lyne, "New Guinea", p. 114).
The portrait superbly illustrates the late-nineteenth-century relationship between Australia and New Guinea; furthermore it specifically illustrates the personal bond that existed between the enigmatic Russian explorer, artist and ethnographer Miklouho-Maclay and the British commander of the Australian Station, Sir James Erskine at the very time that Sir James had proclaimed New Guinea as a British Protectorate - a momentous event in the history of both countries.
This important painting has remained in the family of Commodore Erskine until recent times. For a full catalogue description click here:
