Colonnades of Canberra’s Civic Centre (c. 1944) by Ethel Carrick FoxCanberra Museum and Gallery

The painter of this work, Ethel Carrick (Fox), was born in England in 1872. She created this scene in 1944.

Carrick is well known for her brilliantly colored post-impressionist paintings of European subjects and crowded streets, markets, cafes, and beach scenes.

This work depicts the instantly recognizable Sydney/Melbourne Buildings in Canberra’s city centre on a bright autumn day.

The yellow bicycles in the foreground are typical of the city...

...while her dappled brushwork captures a cool breeze and the colors depict a sunny autumn day in the nation’s capital.
