Lot Essay

The Hughes family, to whom this painting belonged around the turn of the century, were pioneering pastoralists during the early days of the English colony of South Australia, and would become one of the area's most important families. The Hughes family owned the grand home Athelney in Hackney, where they played host to Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, on his tour of Australia in October 1867.
