  • About

    Cedric Emanuel was a commercial artist best remembered for his published watercolours and drawings of Sydney architecture, especially the terrace houses of Paddington. He was taught to etch by Sydney Long in 1931, and found that it suited his way of drawing. He made over forty etchings in the 1930s and 40s, predominantly rural, waterside and architectural studies.

    'Halvorsens' is the name of the boatshed in the centre of the image; Emanuel made several etchings of boatsheds around the bays of Sydney Harbour. This is my happiest etching as the whole process was completed satisfactorily in one day. It is a section of a pen and wash drawing.
