T.C. - (Tom) Francis Thomas Dean Carrington (1843 - 1918)

T.C. – (Tom) Francis Thomas Dean Carrington (1843 – 1918) Carrington was born in London and studied in Paris before moving to Melbourne in the 1860s and pursuing an art career. He was a cartoonist for Melbourne Punch, and artist for the Australasian Sketcher. He joined the special train accompanying the police to Glenrowan, to cover the last siege of Ned Kelly. His article ‘Catching the Kellys: a personal narrative of one who went in the special train’ was published in The Australasian on Saturday 3 July, 1880. This article, written in the first person, evocatively describes the siege and capture of Kelly at Glenrowan. Carrington’s illustrations of the siege and its aftermath for the Australasian Sketcher are among his most famous drawings. Together, his words and images underpin the way Ned Kelly is remembered in Australian history and cultural mythology.
