Ca. July-August 1911. Twenty-one loose watercolours, including ten large ones ca. 28x38 cm (11x15 in) and six smaller ones ca. 13,5x22,5 cm (5 ¼ x 9 in); the other five are from ca. 22,5x31,5 cm (9 x 12 ½ in) to ca. 17,5x25,5 cm (7x10 in). All but three watercolours mounted on period paper leaves with manuscript ink titles. Seven watercolours with period pencil captions on verso (one identifies “Lucy Burton” as the artist); one watercolour is signed “L. Burton” in the right lower corner. Several mounts with minor tears on the margins, but the watercolours are bright and sound. Overall a very good collection of attractive watercolours.

An attractive collection of early 20th-century watercolours of the South Pacific made by a female artist, possibly British or Australian. Apparently, drawn during a voyage in summer 1911, the watercolours include several interesting views of German Samoa, showing Apia harbour with the wreck of S.M.S. “Adler” and a volcanic eruption on Savaii Island. The Fiji watercolours include several views of its capital Suva and a lovely sketch of a village on Levuka Island. Four drawings of Tonga depict its capital Nukualofa and famous Haʻamonga ʻa Maui trilithon – the “Stonehenge of the Pacific.” There are also interesting views of Lord Howe Island (between Australia and New Zealand), a volcanic eruption in the Waimangu Rift Valley of New Zealand’s North Island, sketches of Polynesian boats and canoes, Samoan and Tongan houses, a sugar plantation (most likely, in Fiji), a scene with travellers visiting a coastal cave from the sea, a portrait of a Fijian man in traditional dress, etc. Overall a nice collection of pre-WW1 South Pacific watercolours.
