Old Sydney Town by Convict Artists

The history of art in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land during the first half century of settlement is (with the exception of the work of artist visitors and resident amateurs such as naval and military officers) essentially the history of convict art. The convicts were the only coherent group of artists to record the appearance, growth and progress of the two colonies from settlement to civilisation.
