Collection of Cedric Emanuel drawings depicting historical Sydney. I cant remember if they are actual drawings and they are all framed so will sell them as prints.



Cedric Raymond Emanuel (1906 - 1995) was born in Gisborne, New Zealand and arrived in Australia in 1908. He studied under Dattilo Rubbo, Royal Art Society and at the Julian Ashton Art School with William Dobell. He learnt the art of etching under one of Australia's greatest etchers, Sydney Long. At his first exhibition in 1938, his etchings received high critical acclaim: two were purchased by the Art Gallery of New South Wales, and another won the Sesquicentenary Art Award.

He became Australia's best known pen and pencil sketcher, having illustrated more than fifty sketchbooks. He has painted numerous portraits of early and historic buildings, towns and Australian characters. As such, he is considered to have great significance as a visual historian, his work providing a unique historical record unmatched even by some photographic collections. In particular, his passion was for the terraced houses of Sydney, notably in the suburbs of Paddington and Woolloomooloo. In 1981, his services to Australian art were recognised when he was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM).

Emanuel is also well known for the pencil sketches and watercolours he completed during his many working holidays overseas. His favourite destinations were the quaint, historic localities and townships across Europe, and he travelled abroad almost every three years from the 1950s until the 1970s. Many of his watercolours created in Europe bear a striking resemblance to the European work of that other great Australian master, Sir Lionel Lindsay.
