Description :

Three watercolours from Moralana in the Flinders Ranges. The first is a rocky outcrop at Moralana; the second has the note 'Shorn Sheep Paddock'. The third looks across to St. Mary's Peak, the highest point in Wilpena Pound.

Alfred Sells was an Anglican clergyman from England who arrived in South Australia in May 1877 and became the Incumbent of Holy Trinity Church at Lyndoch and later the Incumbent at St Michael's Church at Mitcham for four years from February 1884. He returned to England in 1888. The paintings were done in England, presumably from sketches made while in Australia.
His brother, W.B. Sells, leased the Moralana Run in partnership with P. Butler. Manning
