Gerald Fitzgerald 1908

Bangalow Fine Art are boutique art dealers and valuers who hold quarterly online exhibitions of interesting and important pieces of Australian and international art.

The Spring 2022 Exhibition features an early and important view of the Old Jetty in Byron Bay c.1908.

The old jetty ran about 300m into the sea from the end of Jonson St. The jetty serviced a busy port (second only to Sydney) transporting bananas, meat and dairy products and eventually passengers. As the port grew busier, the Jetty was deemed too small and was replaced by the new jetty in 1928.

The artist, Gerald Fitzgerald, not only captured the working life of Byron and the fashion of the time, he also depicted an early view of the Cape Byron Lighthouse, which, at the time of the painting’s execution in 1908, was a relatively new addition to the landscape having been constructed only seven years earlier.

The Spring 2022 Exhibition also features a lovely work by Fred Williams, and an important early watercolour by Albert Namatjira.

Principal valuer, Matt Henry, is an approved valuer under the Tax Incentive for the Arts Scheme.
