This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Andalusia, Spain in 1768. After joining the Spanish navy, Cardero was assigned to the Malaspina expedition that sailed from Cadiz in 1788.  Coming via South America and Mexico, they anchored  in Monterey, California in 1791. While in Monterey he did several drawings in pencil, pen-and-ink, and watercolor of the colonists, Indians, flora and fauna.  After a brief period in Mexico, he returned to Cadiz where he became a bookkeeper in the Spanish Navy Department.  Works held:  Madrid Museo Naval (Carmel Mission); Bancroft Library, University of California at Berkeley, (wash drawing, Vista del Presidio de Monterey).
