Little is known about this work, apparently no longer in the NGV collection (although it was still listed in the 1943 catalogue).

For further information on the donor, a medico who migrated to Australia from Scotland in the 1850s, see linked entry, and (for the Gilbee Bequest), see Fox Landing of Captain Cook 1902 {1902} NGV [PA].
