Description:

Edward Riley (1784-1825), was a successful merchant and pastoralist who purchased Wooloomooloo farm, from John Palmer. Palmer had been granted the 100 acres head of Garden Island Cove, then known as Palmer’s Cove, where Palmer built Woolloomooloo Farm, one of the colony’s first permanent residences, where the Palmers lived and elegantly entertained the first rank of colonial society.

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.
