Wonderful Watercolour of Hobart, Tasmania signed by the artist L M Allport lower right
It could relate to (although not certain) the artist Lily Allport (1860-1949) who worked as a professional artist for more than six decades.
Her grandmother Mary Morton Allport gave her drawing lessons as a child. At twenty-seven Lily Allport travelled to England. She studied under Hubert Vos and Charles Furse.
In 1891 she became the first Tasmanian-born artist to have her work hung at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. She was also the first Australian to produce colour lithographs in 1908. In 1935, back in Hobart, she set up the Bolt Press in her studio in Collins Street. There she concentrated on printmaking for the rest of her long life.
In a gilt frame which measures approx 44cm x 35cm
