Summary

This book examines the life and work of one of Australia's earliest colonial artists, Joseph Lycett, who worked in Australia from 1815 to 1822, and was responsible for the most extravagantly illustrated account of the colony, published in London in 1824-25. His works in watercolour and oil are among the most important visual records of early New South Wales and Tasmania, documenting the life of Aboriginal people, the landscape and its flora, and the towns, houses and properties of colonial Australia from a time when there were few such competent artists in the colony. --book jacket.
