The only known live-posed portrait of Georgius Everhardus Rumphius was drawn by his son, Paulus Augustus, between October 1695 and July 1696 on Ambon. The governor at the time wrote the encomium, which translates, “Though he be blind, his mental eyes are so sharp that no one can best him at inquiry or discernment. Rumphius is a German by birth but his loyalty and pen are completely Dutch. Let the work say the rest.” This image appeared in the 1999 Yale University Press book, The Ambonese Curiosity Cabinet.
