“A Fabricated New World: Theodore de Bry’s Florida Engravings” with Summer Bias
In 1564, artist and cartographer Jacques Le Moyne arrived in present-day Jacksonville as part of France’s attempt to establish a Huguenot settlement. Le Moyne painted his surroundings: flora, fauna, and the Timucua natives.
Years later, these images were turned into engravings and sold to the public by Belgian engraver Theodore de Bry. The engravings were accepted for years as true recreations of Le Moyne’s firsthand Florida sightings, but more recently, scholars argue that these works were heavily fabricated. Summer Bias, Curator at the Amelia Island Museum of History, will discuss this early-Florida art mystery.
