The Government Camp. May Day Hill, Ovens. Australia, ca. 1852-1881, attributed to Edward La Trobe Bateman

When purchased from Maggs Bros in 1969 it was suggested by that company that these drawings may have been by Eugene von Guerard and indeed until 2007 his authorship of them was tentatively suggested. However a comparison with works by Edward La Trobe Bateman held in both the National Library of Australia and the State Library of Victoria show strong stylistic similarities between those works and these.
