At the turn of the century, Dora Wilson was of Australia’s preeminent female artists. After studying under Frederick McCubbin and Bernard Hall at the National Gallery School she gained traction for her deft draughtsmanship, first in still-lifes and portraits, then in landscapes. So esteemed became her landscapes, that she was commissioned by Sir Baldwin Spencer to go abroad to paint European landmarks.
In this rare watercolour from 1909, Wilson captures the Victorian coastline. Swathed in buttery light, she sparingly paints the ridges of the land. Like a childhood summer, this work free, fresh and nostalgic. Represented in most public, as well as several regional galleries, Wilson is remembered as a truly adept artist, whose presence continue to help redress the absence of women in Australian art history.
