The Lycett collection, by Joseph Lycett

The two volumes of the Lycett Collection held at the Daniel Solander Library are the work of the celebrated, though tragic, convict artist and forger, Joseph Lycett. They contain 88 watercolours of Australian plants, many with pencilled annotations, some dated between 1818 and 1820. It is possible that they were drawn for Governor Macquarie. Lycett is known chiefly for his landscapes of the nascent colony of NSW and his miniature work. Previously, the collection had been attributed to others, including Alan Cunningham or John Lewin. They were donated to the Garden in 1912 and misidentified for more than 80 years. The collection was only identified as Lycett’s in the late 1990s by art curator and historian John McPhee.
