Colonial engraving of John Dunne Italianate house, Linden, at Prahran.

The land where Linden New Art now stands was purchased in 1870 by Jewish immigrant Moritz Michaelis (1820-1902). The Victorian mansion was built in 1871 by notable architect, Alfred Friedrich Kursteiner (1829-1897) and the surrounding gardens were designed by landscape gardener and botanist, William Guilfoyle (1840-1912), who also famously designed Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens. Michaelis named the home Linden meaning ‘Lime Tree’ in German.
