Description:

The design for the female orphan school was based on Mrs Macquarie’s childhood home at Airds in Scotland, with the foundation stone laid in 1813 and completed in 1818. It was built of locally quarried stone and is Australia’s oldest three storey building.

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.
