Sydney Heads, NSW

1866-1868. Colour lithograph, signed in image lower right, title below image, 28.8 x 49.1cm. Old, worn crease to centre of image, repaired tears to upper and lower right of image, slight stains. Framed.

This image is one of 24 drawn by von Guerard onto a lithographic stone, published by Hamel & Ferguson in Eugene von Guerard’s Australian Landscapes, 1866-1868. Held in NGA.

The 1865 oil painting of this view is held in the Art Gallery of NSW with the comment “von Guerard’s ‘Sydney Heads’ depicts a broad sweep of landscape from Vaucluse Bay on the left to Watson’s Bay and Sydney Heads at the right, with the road to the South Head in the foreground. Despite partial screening by vegetation and buildings, the accuracy of his transcription of the view may be confirmed today from the vicinity of ‘Johnston’s Lookout’ in Vaucluse, the probable viewpoint for the artist’s preparatory drawing.”
