ESSAY
In nineteenth-century Australia, the marriage of photography and painting reached fascinating heights - perhaps none greater than those achieved by British-born H.J. Johnstone. Drawn to Australia by gold, his popularity grew through his fashionable photographic studio on Melbourne’s Bourke Street, together with his nationalistic landscapes and flamboyant personality. Exhibiting with the Victorian Academy of Arts from 1872, he was inclined to paint looking into the light, especially sunsets – captured with awe-inspiring realism, stillness echoed in mirrored images and gums silhouetted in grandeur. Johnstone’s related work, Evening Shadows, Backwater of the Murray, 1880, was the first painting acquired by the Art Gallery of South
Australia in 1881.

RELATED WORK:
A Pressing Question, 1874, colour wood engraving, 42.2 × 32.2 cm, in the collection of the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne

ESSAY:
The depiction of love in the nineteenth-century took a variety of forms, the eager, sentimental and moralistic included. In Wooed and Won, 1874, Henry James Johnstone chose the genre of the bush romance, a slice of contemporary life engaging the anecdotal to the naturalism of figures and landscape. Bathed in the sunny light of Australian optimism, the country gallant woos his maiden fair. Bending ever so slightly, his earnest endeavour is profiled with intent. Right hands link in hope. His left grips a whip, with his still saddled, earlier love, relegated to the background. Rich in metaphors, only one slip rail remains to separate the couple. To the right, branches of two young trees entwine. When shown in the annual exhibition of Victorian Academy of Arts, Melbourne, in October 1874, the reviewer for The Argus declared it: ‘noteworthy on account of the Flemish finish of the drapery, and the ability with which the artist has contrived to make both the persons who figure in this rustic idyll tell the story’.1

Most of the exhibited works were of the Australian landscape. The very occasional subject picture included Impudence by Henry Rielly and His First Model by George Sutherland, an amusing domestic scene of a young boy busily drawing the doll proudly held by his sister. Significantly, it was one of only three works selected by The Illustrated Australian News to illustrate the accompanying review, which observed: ‘it would give greater interest to the exhibition if a few more of our artists would devote themselves to figure subjects’.2 Johnstone continued his theme of love in the landscape the following year in TheDipping Place, Dandenong Creek.3

Enticed by gold to Australia in 1853, the flamboyant Johnstone returned to Melbourne, soon rising in prominence as both a photographer and painter. Exhibiting with the Victorian Academy of Arts from 1872, by 1875 he was singled out as ‘decidedly a rising artist, and if it be considered how comparatively short is the time since he first began to exhibit, it must be conceded that he made great progress. Mr. Johnstone combines delicacy of touch with a true eye for colour, and it is very felicitous in reproducing the characteristics of the Australian scenery’. 4 Johnstone, together with Eugène von Guérard, Louis Buvelot, S. T. Gill and others was represented in the collection of the great benefactor of the National Gallery of Victoria, Alfred Felton. Johnstone’s extraordinarily popular oil painting, Evening Shadows, Backwater of the Murray, South Australia, 1880, was the first work acquired by the Art Gallery of South Au

Description: OFF THE TRACK

84 by 120 cm

Signed and dated 1881 lower right; bears artist's name, title and 'Purchased by the Trustees For the National Art Gallery NSW' on frame plaque

PROVENANCE

Purchased by the Trustees of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, in Melbourne in 1883 for £105; de-accessioned by the Gallery in 1946

Australian Paintings, James R. Lawson, Sydney, 26 November 1946

Private collection, New South Wales

EXHIBITED

Believed to have been on loan in Newcastle during 1883

Country Loan Collections, Newcastle, 1899, cat. 41

The Artist and the Patron, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, 2 March - 1 May 1988, not included in catalogue

On loan to the Art Gallery of New South Wales, hung with the permanent collection, 1988-1989

LITERATURE

In various Art Gallery of New South Wales collection display catalogues from 1883 until 1893

NOTE

This poignant episode from pionering life was described in contemporary catalogues at the Art Gallery of New South Wales as 'a traveller, his horse fallen, on a lonely bush track, looking at the directional sign to a nearby station blazed on a large tree in the foreground'. Although nineteenth-century narrative paintings became unfashionable in the 1940s, H. J. Johnstone is now once again considered an important figure in Australian art. The younger Frederick McCubbin described him as 'quite a personality'; and he exhibited successfully in Syney and Melbourne before moving to America.
