Held in NGA. During his time Benjamin Edwin Minns was considered to be one of Australia’s foremost watercolourists. Born near Dungog, NSW, Minns took lessons in painting and drawing at Inverell. “Intending to have a career in law, Minns went to Sydney and worked for the law firm Abbot & Allen. However, he met the artist Charles Conder with whom he shared a studio. Minns then studied under Lucien Henry at Sydney Technical College, also taking lessons in etching and painting from the plein air painter Julian Ashton. Minns obtained his first job at The Illustrated Sydney News with Conder’s help.” Minns also contributed to a number of Australian and British newspapers and magazines. Ref: Wiki.
