Description:

Early view of Parramatta flanked by two imposing buildings, the one on the left on Rose Hill, Government House and on the right, the house of Reverend Samuel Marsden. The twin towers of St John’s Cathedral, the first church in Parramatta can be seen in the centre. In 1818, Lieutenant John Watts, after a request by Elizabeth Macquarie, renovated the church, adding two towers of convict-made sandstock bricks.

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 reconvicted 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.
