OLINDA, c. 1924
While living in Olinda, Arthur Streeton produced many panoramic works, in which he captured the grandeur of the Australian landscape, and emphasized the far distant horizon. This work was painted from the vicinity of Falls Road, Olinda, at a lower elevation and to the north from where he painted ‘View from Farmer’s, Olinda’. His view is northerly, following the direction of the Melba Highway, from Coldstream, across the valley of the Yarra River to Yarra Glen and beyond to Toolangi and the Great Dividing Range.
