Charles Meryon (1821-1868) by Donald Paterson (Christchurch). Meryon was a lieutenant on board the French naval escort ship “Le Rhin” on station at Akaroa between 1843 and 1846 and an artist and well known engraver whose later work in Paris reflected the influence of his stay in New Zealand (information from plaques on ground).
