    ""30. This work has previously been catalogued as by an unknown artist. It is here attributed to Isaac Scott Nind. Nind wrote 'The general appearance of the country, although of a barren nature, is very picturesque. The hills behind the settlement are studded and capped by immense blocks of granite, and are strewed with a profusion of beautiful shrubs, among which the splendid Banksiae grow to a large size, and the Kingia and Xanthorrhoea or grass-tree are abundant'.""
