Leaves From My Sketchbooks. 73. William Smith O'Brien's Cottage, Port Arthur, Tasmania



William Smith O'Brien was a political prisoner at Port Arthur and had his own cottage and privileges. I drew the cottage as a pen sketch at first but then, because it was the brightest thing in a doleful setting, I painted it again in colour. Again function dictates form and I wonder whether the designer of the house knew what an elegant object he had designed?
