    Ogilvie also made a colour linocut of this subject, and probably worked from drawings of the Banksia plant to make both linocut
    and wood engraving.

    ‘This is purely that I loved the design of them and I wanted to put it down … I collected it in the wild, when we were on our
    holidays, and I think I got these from South Gippsland … or the east coast, because they were the most beautiful ones.’

    from Anne Ryan, 'Australian etchings and engravings 1880s–1930s from the Gallery's collection', AGNSW, Sydney 2007
