Sydney From Kerosene Bay

c1914. Watercolour, titled in pencil lower right, 22.8 x 32.9cm. Foxing, old mount burn.

Possibly inspired by Henry Lawson’s poem, Kerosene Bay written in 1914: “Tis strange on such a peaceful day / With white clouds flying o’er, / That foreign boats are in the bay / As prisoners of war. / The Harbour, where they quietly lay; / Smiles brightly as of yore. / Where never angry shot was fired… .”
