Four Folios Of Student Artworks

c1930s. Four buckram-bound folios containing 109 original prints, many signed, some editioned or dated in pencil in lower margin, two annotated “From A. Mackie’s Teacher’s [sic] College Sydney” and dated “26.11.30” in ink verso, 3.7 x 3cm to 16.8 x 22.5cm (prints); 32.2 x 28.2cm (folios, approx. each). Creases, crinkles and minor tears to some prints, slight foxing to margins.

These albums contain etchings, linocuts and woodblock prints by students of Alexander Mackie’s Sydney Teachers’ College while it was in the grounds of the University of Sydney. Many prints illustrate the university campus of the 1930s while others show surrounding buildings, landscapes and harbour views. Other prints show still life or floral arrangements, animals, children and whimsical scenes, religious themes, and ex-libris book plates. A tally of the contents of folios is available on request.

In 1906 Alexander Mackie (1876–1955) was appointed principal of the new Teachers’ College, Sydney, which had been established by the Department of Public Instruction. By 1920 the college had moved into a building in the University of Sydney campus and course offerings grew throughout the decades, eventually becoming a part of the university’s Faculty of Education.
