Notes

Title from auction catalogue.

Inscriptions: "Ginninginderry Plains", and signed by the artist in pencil on verso.

Condition: Slight tear in upper right corner.

The rocks in the left and right foreground resemble rock formations in Ginninderra Creek ; see National Library file R06/6642. The work was probably painted during or after December 1832, when Hoddle surveyed the land of Richard Popham and John Langdon in the Ginninderra Creek area ; see National Library file R07/36318. Alternatively, it may possibily have been painted during or after 1835, when Hoddle surveyed Sturt's land near the Ginninderra Creek and Murrumbidgee junction.
