Founding of the settlement of Port-Jackson at Botany Bay in New South Wales
An idealized print of the imagined circumstances of the foundation of Sydney in 1789, with the town already established in the background. The composition lays emphasis on the natural resources of the land and its amenability to rearing European stock, the directive role of the Navy and military personnel involved, the presence of a gentlemanly civilian element as well (the man shooting on the left), British dominance over the Abroriginal population, and the redemptive qualities of labour to the convicts who comprised the early colonists.
