Additional Information

Pinchgut, this painting is Fort Denison situated in Sydney Harbour, looking from the opera house.

An original Oil painting on stretched canvas. Unframed, sides white, with a wire on the back, ready to hang. Signed on front and back with a certificate of authenticity.

The Island’s Aboriginal name is “Mat-te-wan-ye”, but was called by the British as “rock island”. It was called “pinch gut” after a convict was left there for a week on bread and water. It then was levelled when it was quarried.

During the Crimean war, a Fort  was built to guard the colony from the Russians. However it was completed 3 years after the war had ended and named Fort Denison.

It was hit by a shell from the USS Chicago in 1942 during the Japanese midget submarine attack in the harbour. (The scar on the tower can been seen by the looking for the newer stone,)
