New Caledonia is located in the subregion of Melanesia in the southwest Pacific

In 1842 Meryon went to sea again, being gazetted as " enseigne de vaisseau " to the corvette Le Rhin, which cruised about New Zealand, New Caledonia, and the islands of the Pacific. The fruits of these years of travel in Oceania may be seen in a number of etchings which he made in later life (Delteil 63- 74).
