While failing as a miner he made sketches of the fields, and found he could make a living as a painter. By the early 1860s von Guérard was recognised as the foremost landscape artist in the colonies and in 1870 he was appointed as the first Master of the School of Painting at the National Gallery of Victoria. He returned to Europe in 1882, lost his fortune in the Australian Bank Crash of 1893, and lived in poverty until his death in London in 1901.
