This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jacques de Morgues Le Moyne was an explorer who, along with John White and Theodore de Bry, provided the first pictures of America with narratives of French [Huguenot] settlements in Florida, 1562-1565.

Following is the artist's description of the Timucuan Indian Tribe :

As an artist I have always been drawn to travel. I thirst for new landscapes and exotic people as subjects for my canvas. The Saturiwa, A Timucuan tribe, meet me and my countrymen openly I have spend a great deal of time trying to capture their nobility in images to bring back to France.

So far, I've completed many drawings and painting of various aspects of their lives. I've made sketches of their king and queen and of them worshipping their gods. They are a very religious people. They work hard too. They cook, gather and store food for the winter, but they also take time to play games with small balls.

The National Library of Canada prepared an exhibition from its Rare Book Collection entitled "Passages: A Treasure Trove of North American Exploration." The library highlights an image of the rare book "La Floride francaise, scenes de la vie indienne, peintes en 1564" and a biographical sketch of French artist Jacques Lemoyne de Morgues (?-1587), who was best known for his exact and detailed map of the Florida coast in the 1500s.
