Description:

Paterson is a small township in the lower Hunter Region on the Paterson River. It was named after Colonel William Paterson who surveyed the area in 1801 and by 1812 settlement of the area had begun. Governor Macquarie had permitted three convicts to farm on the “Patersons Plains” at a location that came to be known as Old Banks, on the basis that the settlers supplied the Government with 500 cedar logs.

Artist:

Joseph Lycett  (1777-1828)

Painter & forger convicted in 1811 & transported to Botany Bay.  On arrival he was given his ticket of leave but soon was re-convicted for forgery and sent to the penal settlement of Newcastle. Again in 1821 he received a pardon and returned to England armed with a portfolio of colonial views. In 1824 John published “Views in Australia”  dedicated to the Earl of Bathurst. Lycett is acknowledged as being one the most important colonial artists to record the progress of the colony.
