Call it a quirk of fate, but there is an unexpected poetry to the fact that these images of foreign locales make their debut exhibition in the place where Streeton spent his early childhood, Queenscliff, some 150 years later. Many questions remain unanswered about these etchings and there is much they will continue to reveal. Such treasures are rarely unearthed and elucidate an otherwise unknown moment in Streeton’s career – a stop made upon his journey from the romantic young artist dreaming through the hills of Eaglemont and Box Hill, to the celebrated icon he was to become. “
