The Return of the Prodigal Son


Stanislas-Henri-Benoit Darondeau (4 April 1807 – 12 July 1841) was a French painter, draftsman and engineer who was born in Paris in 1807. He exhibited in the Salon de Paris between 1827 and 1841.[1] He circumnavigated the globe between February 1836 and November 1837 under Auguste Nicolas Vaillant (1793–1858), producing many illustrations of French Polynesia and Hawaii.[2] In 1841-42, he participated in an African expedition under Captain Louis Édouard Bouët-Willaumez aboard the Nisus. Darondeau died in Brest, France in 1841.

The Honolulu Museum of Art and Musée des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux are among the public collections holding works by Stanislas-Henri-Benoit Darondeau.
