  • General note

    Discovered by curator John McPhee in 2006 during research for the exhibition Joseph Lycett: convict artist, this painting is (in 2007) the only known artwork by Lycett before he was transported to Australia. It was probably painted while Lycett awaited trial for forgery in Shrewsbury Gaol. For further information, see Joseph Lycett : convict artist / John McPhee editor, Sydney : Historic Houses Trust of New South Wales, c2006.; and McPhee, J. "Joseph Lycett's Durham, 1811", Australiana, Feb 2006
