DESCRIPTION: This beautiful Portuguese painting "Vasco Da gama" of Portuguese Discoverer painting style, depicts –
In this Portuguese Discoverer painting Dom Vasco da Gama was a Portuguese explorer, one of the most successful in the European Age of Discovery and the commander of the first ships to sail directly from Europe to India. Vasco da Gama was probably born to Estevao da Gama and Dona Isabel Sodre in either 1460 or 1469 in Sines, on the southwest coast of Portugal, probably in a house near the church of Nossa Senhora das Salas. Gama married with Catarina de Ata.
On 12 February 1502, Gama sailed with a fleet of twenty warships, with the object of enforcing Portuguese interests in the east. When he finally reached India, Cabral learned that the Portuguese citizens who had been left by Gama at the trading post had been murdered. After encountering further resistance from the locals, he bombarded Calicut and then sailed south of Calicut to reach Cochin, a small kingdom where he was given a warm welcome. He returned to Europe with silk and gold. Once he had reached the northern parts of the Indian Ocean, Gama waited for a ship to return from Mecca and seized all the merchandise on it.
He then ordered that the 380 passengers be locked in the hold and the ship set on fire. It took four days for the ship to sink and everyone on board died. When Gama arrived at Calicut on October 30, 1502 the Zamora was willing to sign a treaty. Vasco Da Gama died in the city of Cochin on Christmas Eve in 1524 from malaria. His body was first buried at St. Francis Church, Fort Kochi, Kochi but his remains were returned to Portugal in 1539 and re-interred in Vidigueira in a splendid tomb. The port city of Vasco da Gama in Goa is named after him, as is the Vasco da Gama crater, a big crater on the Moon. A church is situated in Kochi, Kerala Vasco da Gama Church.
