About this item: 

This view, looking down from New South Head Road, depicts Vaucluse House with a fete spread over its lawns. The square barracks, built in the late 1820s to house its convict servants, are at the centre of the painting. The artist has framed this picture with a mess of shrubs and vegetation.
