Caption: Last of the Tasmanians, based on a famous 1840 painting (The Conciliation) by the English-born painter Benjamin Duterrau (1767-1851). Lieutenant-Governor and later Chief Protector of Aborigines George Augustus Robinson (1791-1866) is shown with an aborigine woman Truganini and her tribe. Tasmania was settled from 1803. Robinson's protection attempts failed and Truganini, the last full-blooded Tasmanian, died in 1876. This artwork is from 'The Last of the Tasmanians' (Bonswick, 1870).
