The Society of California Pioneers
announces the opening of its upcoming exhibition

The King's Orphan
June 25 through December 4, 2004

The Society of California Pioneers is pleased announce its upcoming exhibition, The King's Orphan, opening Friday, June 25. This exhibition features thirty-three drawings made between 1842 and 1843 by a Swedish explorer to California who recorded everything he saw for the benefit of king and country. The author of these works, the first recorded Swedish visitor to California, was the alleged illegitimate offspring of King Karl XIII, educated at the expense of the Swedish crown before coming to America. The exhibition follows the travels of this self-described "physician, mining expert, and naturalist" as he recorded his observations of the new land and its people in vivid detail. The artist covered a wide array of subjects ranging from towns, missions, and landscapes to descriptions of Native Americans, Mexicans, californianos, and members of the animal kingdom.
