Description
This naive painting is a rendering of Charles Heaphy's original work, 'Part of Lambton Harbour in Port Nicholson, 1841'. Jessie Svenson came from a family of strong Salvationists at Morrison's Bush in the Wairarapa. At a relatively young age, and apparently on the advice of the Salvation Army, she was committed to Porirua mental hospital, where she remained for the rest of her life.
