Catalogue Details

An outstanding artist with a career covering many decades, Rees early studies and interest lay in careful studies of topography and buildings. From Brisbane he moved to Sydney 1917 and 1923 marked his first trip overseas. Lloyd stayed at Kingsand in Cornwall with the Brantons, people he met on the voyage to England. This painting was presented to Lloyd’s sister Enid and her husband Merlin, of Brisbane; hence by descent.

This painting is listed as ‘Plymouth Sound’ however it is also labelled ‘Barrenjoey Lighthouse’ Further to research and reference through the Allan and Jan Rees, the following would seem fitting, and that original title of this painting was Plymouth Sound.

Notes
This is the only work by Lloyd Rees within the estate and by descent from his sister Enid. The Plymouth Sound and Barrenjoey Lighthouse share the same medium, dimensions and provenance, in all catalogues and book references. The subject is certainly not Barrenjoey lighthouse which is on a headland. Topographically the scene could be the lighthouse on the western end of the Plymouth Breakwater, with Fort, these features being easily visable from where Lloyd’s accommodation in Cornwall. The style of this painting is consistent with his other Cornish paintings (see illustrated in Renee Free Lloyd Rees 1972 p. 109 Cat 11 A Cornish Village 1923, Cat 12 The Old Fort, Portsmouth Harbour 1923, Cat 14 Cornish Coast 1923). (Also see additional image ‘The Lane’ 1924) There is no record of anything titled Barrenjoey Lighthouse, certainly from the 1920’s period, prior to the Warana Festival.

Consistent with evidence of catalogue records and family ownership, it is confident to say that this is the painting originally know as Plymouth Sound.

Catalogue Details

Charles Edward Conder (1868-1909), painter, lithographer and fan-designer, was born in London, his father subsequently sent him to NSW arriving 1884, to work under his uncle, William Jacomb Conder, where he was employed in the office of the Lands Department.
Late in 1886 or early in 1887 Conder became lithographic apprentice to Gibbs, Shallard & Co. in Sydney and from April to October 1887 attended painting classes at the Art Society of New South Wales under the French-trained landscape painter, Alfred Daplyn, and also studied Julian Ashton, Sydney's foremost open-air painter and portraitist, who took Conder on sketching tours along the Hawkesbury River. Conder also painted with Albert Fullwood, and was in contact with the Italian Marchese Girolamo Nerli, a fashionable society portraitist, and the English cartoonist Phil May, then employed by the Sydney Bulletin,
From October 1888 to April 1890 Conder settled in Melbourne; there he first shared a studio with Roberts. Together with Arthur Streeton, Roberts and other painters he spent the summers of 1888-89 and 1889-90 at the Eaglemont 'camp' near Heidelberg. Conder played a memorable part in the growth of the first Australian school of open-air painting, in the exhibition of 9 x 5 impressions at Buxton Galleries, Swanston Street, on 17 August 1889 for which he designed the invitation and exhibiting some 47 works, also contributed to the exhibitions of the Victorian Artists' Society of November 1888, May 1889 and March 1890.
He returned 1890 to Paris and London, studying at Cormon’s atelier and where he mixed with literary and artistic identities including the likes of Oscar Wilde, Audrey Beardsley, Whistler and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
He took up residence in London in 1894 but made frequent journeys to Normandy and Dieppe. After 1895 he became increasingly preoccupied with fan designs and working in water-colour on silk which laid the foundations of his fame, and was encouraged by William Rothenstein to make lithographs. In 1900 Conder married Stella Maris Belford, and for the next six years led a socially graceful life, however after 1907 frequently confined to a sanatorium, and died 1909, Surrey.

The painting ‘Le Passeport’ is a beautiful work and in excellent condition. It was first exhibited in
