1890. "Shearing the Rams" by Australian artist Tom Roberts. The painting depicts sheep shearers plying their trade in a timber shearing shed. Distinctly Australian in character, the painting is a celebration of pastoral life and work, especially "strong, masculine labour" and recognises the role that wool-growing played in the development of the country.

Australian Tom Roberts - Shearing the rams - This is an Australian image that is imprinted on the mind's eye of all Aussies. (The shearer right at the front wearing the pink shirt is my Great-great grandfather - added by Jennifer M)
