Drover at Sunset, c1900 Australian School


A distinctly Australian landscape, painted circa 1900, around the period of The Heidelberg School of Australian landscape painters (1888-1910), and with echos of Hans Heysen’s Droving into The Light (1914-1921).

A captivating scene of a dusty amber lit sky at the end of a long hot day. The last of the suns heat illuminating the ancient Gum tree and the fleeced backs of the sheep.

The drover on horseback in the distance gives perspective to this intimate view of early Australian bush life.
