This ink drawing by Piguenit was created as an illustration of his oil painting of the same name for the Royal Art Society exhibition catalogue of 1888. The painting is held by the NGV.

Considered to be the first Australian-born artist of note, William Charles Piguenit was “mainly self-taught, drawing his inspiration from European romanticism…An enthusiastic explorer, he travelled widely looking for natural scenery.” Ref: AGNSW; ADB.
