Twenty Minutes Past Three (1886). Thomas William “Tom” Roberts (Australian, Heidelberg School, 1856–1931). Oil on canvas. The woman appears worried as she stares at the grim-faced man edging past the door. She has put aside her reading which perhaps has been replaced by the clock, showing that it is twenty minutes past three. Perhaps her husband has returned after a futile search for their child. She fears that there has been a misadventure.
1890. "Shearing the Rams" by Australian artist Tom Roberts. The painting depicts sheep shearers plying their trade in a timber shearing shed. Distinctly Australian in character, the painting is a celebration of pastoral life and work, especially "strong, masculine labour" and recognises the role that wool-growing played in the development of the country.
