THE ARTIST’S HOME,
Clara Southern captures in this work her small cottage ‘Blythe Bank’, which was situated on the Research-Warrandyte Road, North Warrandyte. Built on the side of a hill, with entrance via a ramp, the cottage consisted of one large square living/dining room, a small bedroom and a tiny kitchen area. There was an open fire, no electricity, an outdoor laundry and toilet, and a rough rocky garden of scattered bulbs and an orchard with a variety of fruit trees. Her neighbour, living at ‘Kipsy’ was fellow artist, ‘Jo’ Sweatman. Sadly, ‘Blythe Bank’ has since been destroyed by bushfire.Copyright Notice
