* Jacques le Moyne de Morgues (c. 1533–1588) was a French artist and member of Jean Ribault's expedition to the New World (1564-1566). His depictions of Native American life and culture, colonial life, and plants are of extraordinary historical importance. Le Moyne's highly important account of this transatlantic voyage, is known today from a Latin edition published in Frankfurt in 1591 by Theodore de Bry. The text by de Bry describes and analyses the images, and his book constitutes a major landmark in the literature of the early exploration of the Americas. In later life Le Moyne fled France after the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre of Huguenots in 1572, ultimately settling in England. Le Moyne ended his career as a highly regarded botanical artist in Elizabethan London, where his patrons included Sir Walter Raleigh and Lady Mary Sidney.
