BOX HILL LANDSCAPE,
Not long after this work was painted, Tom Roberts, Frederick McCubbin and Louis Abrahams, established their Artists' Camp on Houston's property, on the rise above his bark hut, close to Damper Creek.
Damper Creek is known as Gardiner's Creek, and the open rolling hillsides
depicted in this work, with only one or two homesteads, are now home to
the busy suburb of Box Hill.
