An examination of the Impressionist artists’ camps on the shores of Sydney Harbour in the late Nineteenth Century.
Part One
looks at the Artists’ Camp on Edwards Beach in Mosman. Established by the Bulletin cartoonist, Livingston Hopkins, it attracted Sydney’s most radical artists, including Julian Ashton, A.J. Daplyn, and Henry Fullwood, along with such students as Charles Conder and Benjamin Minns. It was here that the seeds of Australian Impressionist were sown.
Part Two looks at the later Curlew Camp on Little Sirius Cove in Mosman. Established by the Brasch Brothers as a weekend retreat, it became a home for painters during the economic depression of the 1890s, with Tom Roberts and Arthur Streeton among those living there. It was here that Australian Impressionism flowered, with Roberts and Streeton painting many of their major works while living in its tents.
