Old Houses In Richmond Paddock

c1870s. Watercolour, annotated in an unknown hand in pencil on backing below image, annotation is repeated in another hand on backing verso, 20.5 x 29.1cm. Foxing overall, laid down on old backing.

Annotation reads “Old houses in Richmond paddock, copied from a drawing by Buvelot. He did a considerable part of it. It therefore possesses great value.” While Buvelot’s paintings were held in high regard his major contribution to Australian art was as a tutor and as an exponent of plein air painting influencing several members of the Heidelberg School, including Arthur Streeton, who named Buvelot’s 1866 painting Summer Evening Near Templestowe the “first fine landscape painted in Victoria.” Ref: Wiki.
