Joseph Lycett (c1775-1828) Australia

Biographical Information

Born in England in 1774, Lycett was an accomplished portrait painter and miniature painter. Convicted of forgery and transported to Australia in 1811, he was again convicted in 1815, this time of forging bills drawn on the Post Office. In the ensuing years he painted scenes of Australia's countryside. After three of his paintings were presented to Lord Bathurst as a gift he was granted a pardon and returned to England in 1822 where he published a three-part book. This was later bound as 'Views of Australia'. Much of his work is owned by the Mitchell Library Sydney Edit or add to this biography
