WC Piguenit


William Charles Piguenit, 1836-1914, Australian.

Unassuming and retiring, he shrank from controversy and quietly resigned from the Art Society of New South Wales when it split over the impressionist movement. The first Australian-born artist of note, he delighted in mountain scenery and often chose dramatic subjects for his painting.

Mount Kosciusko is the highest point in Australia.

It was a powerful representation of Mount Kosciusko, wasn't it. I will add a link to my post straight away.

Many thanks
