[Art on Sunday] John Lewin (1770-1819) was the first fully professional artist to stay permanently in Australia. He had an impeccable pedigree, his father William Lewin a fellow of the Linnean Society and author of The Birds of Great Britain published in London in 1789-94. John, armed with printing materials and paper, was eager to go to New South Wales to publish his own book of its natural wonders. Despite the fact that all his equipment perished at sea.
