Footnotes

  • Walter Withers, having studied at the Royal Academy Schools in London arrived in Australia in December 1882. Following a spell as a jackaroo he found work in Melbourne, initially as a draughtsman for the printers William Inglis & Co. and then as an illustrator for Ferguson & Mitchell.

    He returned to London in 1887 and then studied with Emanuel Phillips Fox at the Academie Julien in Paris. An invitation from his old employer's Ferguson & Mitchell, returned him to Melbourne in 1889. In 1890 he took over the large house 'Charterisville' in Heidelberg, Victoria and sublet lodges in the grounds to other artists, so establishing what became known as the 'Heidelberg School'.

    In 1902 he purchased the house 'Southernwood' at Eltham, Victoria. He painted many views around the sleepy settlement often featuring the sheep and cattle of his neighbour Tom Orr.
