NOTES

Signature / Inscriptions

Signed at lower right 'Jno Bennett'

Attributions / Conjectures

Image appears to be closely derived from a lithograph issued by John Austin in ca. 1836, a copy of which is at PXA 662. Both ML 1421 and ML 1422 are near identical sizes and contain near identical content to the lithographs, which would suggest a close correlation between the 2 formats.

Reference:
Senior Curator, Mitchell Library, 2009

Date note

Undated. Date approximated from the date Bennett exhibited ML 1421 at the Society for the Promotion of the Fine Arts in Australia in Sydney.
