King Bungaree 1829 Sydney
Original title: '20. King Bungaree 1829 Sydney'
Although an inscription on this drawing attributes it to Ambrose Wilson, it is more likely to be by Charles Rodius, who was employed to teach drawing to Sir Francis Forbes's children [see Colonial Secretary's Letters Received 1831. Ticket of Leave petition dated 15 November, 32/4181 in 4/2144 State Archives of NSW]. This drawing is very similar to the lithograph published by Rodius in 1829 [see P2/531] and stylistically can be attributed to him.
