Samuel Elyard “became an artist at an early age, painting street scenes, picturesque buildings and landscapes in and around Sydney while working as a clerk in the Colonial Secretary’s Office. When he retired from the public service in 1868 he settled at Nowra where his family had long been landholders. Several of his paintings of scenery around Nowra were exhibited with the NSW Academy of Art in the 1870s and he later exhibited in local shows and exhibitions.” Ref: SLM.
