One Jack Russell terrier puppy wins the race up three steps. William Strutt (1825-1915), son of William Thomas Strutt, travelled to Australia and tried his hand in the Ballarat gold fields. Failing to make his fortune he returned to painting. He travelled to New Zealand 1855-6, and recorded the preparations of the Burke and Wills exploration expedition in 186061. He left Australia in 1862, not wanting to bring his children up in such a godless society. Back in England he turned his sketches into full paintings: in 2015 his ''View of Mt Egmont from New Plymouth, with Maoris driving off settlers' cattle'' was purchased by the Museum of New Zealand for NZ$1.5 million, becoming the only significant oil painting from the 1850s or 1860s in their collection. The engraver of this plate, Alfred William Strutt, was his son, born in Taranaki, New Zealand in 1856.
