Harraway Painting

A family research question crossed our desk this week regarding a painting. It was signed by E Harraway and dated 20 Nov 1901. 

The painting was found in a house at 47 Queen Street, Otautau, and was unframed. When the owner moved away in the 1960s, she took it with her, and it was later framed.

We don't know of any Harraways in Otautau, yet there must be some connection somewhere.

If you have any information on the painter or where the landscape is taken from, please get in touch.

Thank you.

Note: We're closed for the winter but will open again in October 2015. You can request an individual visit by request if you would like to see the museum in person.
