Description:

Colonial engraving of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne. In 1847, only 12 years after the foundation of Melbourne, the Colonial Secretary of Victoria granted the Roman Catholic church a block of land for a church in the Eastern Hill area. The Cathedral was designed in the Gothic Revival style, based on the great medieval cathedrals of England, a style at the height of its popularity in the mid 19th century.

William Crothers Fitler (1857 - 1915)

Fitler was born in Philadelphia in 1857 and studied art at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He was a tonalist landscape painter and most of his works depict views of New York, Connecticut, or Long Island. Fitler was a member of the Salmagundi Club, New York Watercolor Club, Brooklyn Art Association, Artists Fund Society, and New York Municipal Art Society. Fitler came to Australia with Fred B. Schell and W.T. Smedley to work on Australia's most ambitious and largest colonial publishing venture the, Picturesque Atlas of Australia. On his return to America he exhibited widely and was included in shows at the National Academy (1880-1907), Brooklyn Art Club (1881-1886), and Boston Art Club (1881-1908).
