A Holiday at Mentone (1888) by Charles Conder

Charles Conder (1868-1909) was an English-born painter who emigrated to Australia at a young age and painted pictures that are distinctively Australian in character.

Conder’s 1888 painting, A Holiday at Mentone, depicts a beach in the Melbourne suburb of Mentone where dressed-up people are engaged in seaside activities in the brilliant noonday sun.
