NOTES

General note

Sotheby's Sale Catalogue gives the name of the station as Warbreccau; this is incorrect; see Gazetteer No. 40 Australia. U.S. Board of Geographic Names Washington 1957. Note also that the catalogue attributes the picture to 'Edward River', but this would appear to be the name of a place not a person.

Signature / Inscriptions

Unsigned. Titled, as above, below view in ink followed by '..showing that by proper treatment and management, 1000 sheep may be washed daily by 12 or 13 black[s], one white overseer and shepherd'

Attributions / Conjectures

Attributted to J.Phillips on stylistic grounds. Compared with his signed 'Cobran Station' Lot 239 in the same sale now filed at DG SV1B/23

Date note

The other picture of Warbreccan in same lot at DG V1B/12 is dated 1848
