About This Item

Sydney: John Sands Lith., 1884. Very good overall. Large chromolithograph of a new settler day-dreaming of his future country estate, while three aborigines peer in his rough shack, one attempting to steal his shot gun. "Presented with the Town & Country Journal, December, 1884" in the top margin above the print. William Macleod was an artist and businessman who became the joint owner of "The Bulletin" in 1887 with J.F. Archibald, and he was the Bulletin's manager or managing director for the next forty years. This painting received 2nd prize in the "Town and Country Journal" Art Competition, the 1st going to Julian R. Ashton. Laid down on cardboard, sml. corner watermarked otherwise in very good condition. 18 1/2 x 14 1/4" with margins. Not individually recorded in Trove.
