Description:

Fine etching of St Jude’s, Randwick by Gayfield Shaw, numbered 15 of 50 at lower left and signed in pencil lower right, dated in the plate 2nd June, 1934.

Differing views exist as to who was the architect for St Jude’s. Simeon Pearce has been suggested, as well as Edmund Blacket. The central tower and buttressed side aisles were said to be inspired by the Parish Church of St. John in Randwick, Gloucestershire. The foundation stone was laid on 25 May 1861 by either The Rt. Rev. Dr. Frederick Barker or by Canon Allwood, the then Rector of St. James Church, King Street, Sydney.  St. Jude’s Cemetery opened in 1853 as part of a larger cemetery grant for all denominations. The church was completed until 29 June 1865.

Gayfield Shaw (1885 - 1961)

Shaw was a commercial gallery director, and one of the most prominent members of the Sydney art scene during the early boom period in Australian visual art following the end of the First World War. He was also a skilled printmaker who took a leading role in establishing the nation's first etching society.
