  • About

    Sydney is an artists’ city – glorious – Roberts & I go to Mossman’s Bay [sic] & pull through the lazy green water, & then lunch under the shade in the open air, eggs, meat, cheese & 2 big bottles of claret grown in Australia. The little Bay seemed all asleep & so very peaceful.

    Arthur Streeton, 1890

    Arthur Streeton painted this sketch from a corner of the beach at Little Sirius Cove at Mosman Bay, the site of an idyllic artists’ painting camp known as Curlew Camp. With fellow artist Tom Roberts, Streeton led a bohemian lifestyle, living under canvas shelters and commuting to the city by boat.
