Provenance:  Acquired in the United Kingdom in 1976 as part of a collection of six Australian landscape paintings by the artist

Exhibited: Early Australian Painters, Bridget McDonnell Gallery, 1989

Literature: The collection included  A Glimpse of the Sea, which we sold a few years ago, and four paintings illustrated in In Search of Derwent Lees by Henry R Lew, 1996: plate 15 The Three Sisters, Katoomba, N.S.W.; plate 16 Narrow Neck, N.S.W.; plate 17 Central Tablelands and plate 18 Barrenjoey Lighthouse, Palm Beach, N.S.W. which we included in our Early Australian Painters exhibition in 1998
