Further Information

Most of John Glover's Tasmanian paintings are of the immediate surroundings of his properties in Hobart, at Bagdad and on the Nile River at Patterdale; ''At Moulting Lagoon'' is one of only two known works which depict the island's east coast. It presents the view southward from the head of Moulting Lagoon looking past Great Swanport down Great Oyster Bay. The Freycinet Peninsula with Mt Freycinet's distinctive profile is visible at the left, in the centre the coast retreats in a series of successively paleing and blueing promontories towards Cape Bougainville, while on the right the landscape rises in a series of hills to Mt Ponsonby and Mt Cartwright.
