Jacques LeMoyne

Jacques LeMoyne was a French artist who came to Florida in 1564. As one of the first artists to visit the New World, LeMoyne traveled through northern Florida and charted much of the coastline and recorded the lifestyle of the Timucuan Indians. LeMoyne’s drawings were engraved by Theodore DeBry, who published a book of the engravings in 1591. This book allowed Europeans to have their first glimpses of North America.
