  • General note

    Possibly by Smith: note a reference to a work by Smith described in the Sydney Morning Herald of 20 July 1855 p.2 "We at once recognized a splendid view of Woolloomooloo Bay, the foliage of which is beautifully painted... The large castellated building at Darlinghurst [Grantham] forms a prominent object in the midst of the most lovely foliage; and the fine clouded sky and azure water complete a scene of rare beauty." This description basically accords with this work.
    A possible companion landscape to this work, of Government House, Sydney, is held by the Australian Club, Sydney.
