Further Reading

Two books are invaluable on the subject of Watling:

1. Thomas Watling Limner of Dumfries by Hugh Gladstone, reprinted privately 1938 from the Transactions of the Dumfries and Galloway Natural History and Antiquarian Society, Third Series Vol 20 Pages 70-133.

2.The Art of the First Fleet and other early Australian drawings edited by Bernard Smith and Alwyne Wheeler, Yale University Press, 1988.

This tour is based on the booklet produced for the exhibition Thomas Watling - Dumfries' Convict Artist held at Dumfries Museum from August to September 1988.
