A Glimpse of the Ocean

Oil on canvas on board
24 x 26.5 cm

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

The collection included the previous entry in this catalogue Along the Riverbank 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.

It is significant that these works were painted before the artist travelled to London in 1905.  There he met up with Augustus John and J. D. Innes
