Abstract

When the Anglo-Australian artist, Samuel Thomas Gill, died in Melbourne in 1880, he left behind one of the most telling archives of nineteenth century Australia, a body of work—watercolours, sketches, lithographs—that bears witness to the everyday life of settler-colonialism in the country.
