This painting was a gift from Emily Cecilia Bowden-Smith to her husband Rear-Admiral Nathaniel Bowden-Smith, Commander-in-Chief of the Australian fleet 1892-1894 - a reminder of their time in Sydney living at Admiralty House. 

This painting has been held in a private collection but will now be featured on permanent public display.
