Hutt Valley (painting (visual work); Tom Roberts (Australian painter, 1856-1931); 1900; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; 2006-0005-1)
Note: The Australian impressionist Tom Roberts painted Hutt Valley and In quarantine, Wellington during an unexpected quarantine in Wellington Harbour. The two tiny oils are the only paintings he is known to have completed during a week in March 1900 when the Monowai, the Sydney-to-Wellington steamer on which he was a passenger, was forced to anchor at Matiu-Somes Island as a precaution against the spread of bubonic plague from Sydney. To pass the time in quarantine, Roberts also helped write, illustrate and publish The Monowai Rat, a humorous sixteen-page magazine that was sold as a fundraiser for the Boer War effort.
