[White, Frederick John], fl 1837-1848 :Constitution Hill, Wellington, 1848.
White, Frederick John, active 1837-1848

A view of Wellington, looking up The Terrace, with gardens, fences and houses, two people walking up the road, the harbour on the left and Mt Cook and part of Mt Victoria in the background, along with a few houses on the Te Aro foreshore, possibly including Te Aro Pa.

On the verso is an outline pencil sketch of the contours of the hills with the harbour from the same viewpoint.

Attributed to White on stylistic grounds, especially the liberal use of red gouache. The watercolour is titled in the hand of T. B. Collinson, but is not drawn in his style. The next three sketches in this group of loose sketches are signed Fred. J. White.
