John Wanliss (1789-1866) of Jamesfield, Carpow, and St. Magdalene's farm, Perth, about 1860

One of two paintings in the collection of the Art Gallery of Ballarat in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. The other is of his wife Janet Drummond. The clothing and age of the subjects dates the pictures to around 1860. Labels on the back link to a frame maker in Perth, and although the paintings are unsigned, the artist is believed to be John Maclaren Barclay (1811-1886), based on comparisons to known paintings made by him that are in the Perth Art Gallery. The paintings have recently been conserved. John & Janet's son Thomas Drummond Wanliss emigrated to Australia in the 1850s and lived at Ballarat. He returned to Scotland for a visit in 1861, so he may have brought the paintings back with him then.
