Further Information

Percy Lindsay, elder brother of artists Norman, Lionel and Daryl, returned to his birthplace of Creswick to attend outdoor landscape classes with teacher Walter Withers in the summer of 1893.  Already an accomplished painter, particularly of landscapes, he is often regarded as the finest painter of all the Lindsays.   

His Creswick paintings between 1890 – 1900, of mining subjects, are his most highly acclaimed and engaging works. Miner’s Cottage, Creswick (1897) also shows his interest and skill in capturing atmospheric effects.  Many of his Creswick and mining paintings are held in public galleries.
