Frederick McCubbin - NGA

Frederick McCubbin (1855–1917) was a son of Melbourne. He was born and brought up in working-class Melbourne, he trained at the National Gallery of Victoria’s art school from 1872 to 1886 and was drawing master there from 1886 to 1917. He lived in Melbourne and its surrounds for his entire life (bar a few months), and made Melbourne the central subject of his art. No other Melbourne artist was better known than he during his lifetime.
