Title

The farm sheds


Artist

Sydney Ure Smith

Australia

09 Jan 1887 - 11 Oct 1949


About

Ure Smith produced some extraordinarily sensitive etchings of Sydney and its environs, including the town of Windsor, which he loved for its Georgian architecture and rustic farm buildings. In these evocative and thoughtfully composed etchings, Ure Smith's interest in the effect of light falling on various surfaces is most skilfully translated.
