NEAR EAGLEMONT, VICTORIA, c. 1890
The Charterisville Estate comprised 168 acres, and extended from the Eaglemont hillside to the Yarra River flats. Painted from the 10 acre garden at Charterisville, Withers has depicted in the foreground of this work one of the small brick cottages on the Estate.
Withers has provided us with a glimpse of the Yarra River, and across the river in the distance is the mansion Clarendon Eyre, originally called Springbank, built in Bulleen in 1865.
