  • About

    Jessie Traill studied at the National Gallery School in Melbourne and from 1907-09 in London under Frank Brangwyn. She exhibited her etchings from 1908 and her subjects ranged from urban/industrial to pastoral. Traill won international prizes for her prints and was a member of the influential Australian Painter-Etchers' Society following her return to Australia in 1920. She is now recognized as one of the most influential and original Australian printmakers of the inter-war period.

    In 1922 Traill travelled to a new settlement, Red Cliffs, in north-west Victoria. Here she made a number of etchings which she exhibited with others made at Broken Hill, in the same year. This print is from that series.
