Lloyd Rees AC CMG (1895-1988) was one of Australia's most celebrated landscape painters. The Brisbane-born artist developed his technique with pen and ink drawings of the city before moving to Sydney in 1917 to work in a commercial art studio. In the early 1930s he concentrated solely on drawing, particularly the rocky landscapes around Sydney, but by the late 1930s he began painting in an increasingly romantic manner. Between 1946 and 1970, when this picture was taken, Rees taught part-time in the Architecture Department at the University of Sydney.

Anthony Browell is an architectural photographer whose most recent exhibition featured images of the vanishing Sydney industrial waterfront.
