Hunter, John (1737-1821; English)
Watercolour, size unknown
Acquired by 1894
Unidentified; present location unknown
Hunter, who arrived in Sydney with the First Fleet in 1788, and later succeeded Arthur Phillip as the second governor of New South Wales (1795-1800), also drew extensively while in Australia: see linked entry for further details.
Unfortunately, this particular work, listed in both NGV 1894 and 1905, no longer appears to be in the collection.
