  • General note

    Formerly attributed to John William Lewin and titled, "Parramatta 1819".
    Another watercolour, received by the Library in 1979, is very similar but is titled, "South view ... from the Great Western Road near the Turnpike houses (V1B/Parr/23). The latter is signed and dated, "J L... 1820", and differs in that the trees framing the view are omitted. These watercolours and are similar to Lycett's published plate, "Paramatta [i.e. Parramatta] .." in his "Views in Australia or New South Wales, and Van Diemen's Land delineated in fifty views with descriptive letterpress", London, Souter, 1824 (M.L. F980.1/L).
