(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1838 - 1902, New York)

Middle Harbor [Sydney] , June 3, 1888

Watercolor and graphite on paper
14 3/4 in. x 10 1/2 in. (37.47 cm x 26.67 cm)
Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Frederic B. Schell, Jr.
Well-known as a travel illustrator, Schell made several trips in the 1880s to Australia and New Zealand as part of an enormous project, a ‘Picturesque Atlas of Australasia’. Watercolors such as this one were on-site studies, which would later be translated into wood engravings to illustrate volumes for armchair travelers.
