Schnapper Point [Mornington, Vic.]

1870. Pencil drawing, titled, dated “April 12th, 1870” and annotated lower left, 20.5 x 27.7cm. Reinforced fold to centre, slight discolouration.

Annotation reads “From ‘Manyung’ grounds.” This drawing is most likely by Rosalie Ann Thorne (Aust., 1850-1927), reputedly a pupil of Conrad Martens. She was a friend of his daughter, Rebecca Martens (Aust.,1836-1909), who was also her mentor. The two friends often went sketching together. Ref: DAAO.

The “Manyung” mansion, now known as “Norman Lodge” was built in 1863 by Richard Grice, one of Australia’s largest pastoralists. It was later owned by Norman Myer of Myer Department Stores. Ref: Mornington Peninsula.com.
