About the original painting:
"On top of the island is the Tasman Lighthouse, a navigational beacon since the early 1900s. The landing platform was constructed to allow the lighthouse keepers and their families to access the island and receive supplies. The island is very steep, with sheer cliffs on most sides rising up to the flattened top of the island, which is on average 280 metres above sea level.
The structure attached to the platform was used to haul people and cargo from ships waiting below onto the platform. Often the weather conditions were too atrocious for resupply to safely occur. Shortly after this was painted the platform, some 20 metres above sea level, was nearly ripped from its foundations by incredibly rough seas.
Tasman Island lies just off the coast of the Tasman Peninsula, not far from the entrance to Port Arthur’s more sheltered harbour."
