SOUTHERN, Clara (1861-1940)

artist
was born at Kyneton, Victoria, in 1861. She studied at the national gallery school at Melbourne under Folingsby (q.v.) and spent much of her life at Warrandyte, a township on the Yarra some 15 miles from Melbourne. She did much sincere painting of this country, but though her pictures were admired by the artists of her time, they were not very well known. She died on 15 December 1940. There is an excellent example of her work in the Melbourne gallery, "The Bee Farm", subtle and refined in colour. Miss Southern married John Flinn but usually exhibited under her original name.
