Lesbia Thorpe 'Terraced Houses Royal Parade'

Regular price $1,250.00

A pillar in Australian printmaking, Lesbia Thorpe was a master of her craft. Part of her charm lay in the distinct ability to distill Melbourne s character. In Terraced Houses Royal Parade this is epitomised, with Thorpe gracefully crafting a silhouette of the eponymous street. Exhibited as part of a printmaking retrospective at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, this work is highly desirable for its rarity and role in Victoria s art history. Stroll down Royal Parade Parkville today and you will still recognise the Elm trees, architecture and huddled figures of Thorpe’s vision.
