[Design For Romanesque-Inspired Apartments]

1927. Watercolour with crayon and pencil, partially legible signature “Harold […]” and dated lower left, 47.9 x 62.2cm. Slight stains to upper portion of image, minor crinkles.

British-born architect Harold Crone moved to Australia after serving in WWI. He worked for several years at the Sydney architectural firm of Scott, Green & Scott, then left the firm to practise on his own, most likely in Manly where he resided. He achieved distinction in 1928 by winning the architectural competition for the design of an Anglican cathedral for Canberra, which due to the subsequent depression and wars, was never built. Ref: East, Australian Romanesque, 2016; Construction, 14.03.1951.
