Aubrey, Christopher, fl 1870s-1900s :Thomas Cotter homestead, Silverstream (now St Patrick's College) 1890.

Reference Number: C-030-018

Shows a view of a farmstead and outbuildings, on the higher side of the road in the foreground. A child supervises two cows entering a farm gateway through the mud, for milking, while two other cows await them near a shed. There is a formal garden in front of the house, and the trees around the homestead are pine and yew or cypress. The background hills are partially covered in bush. The small cottage immediately to the right of the main house is probably the one that later became 'Pumpkin Cottage', the centre for a group of artists.

Historical Notes: According to J M Kenneally's "Upper Hutt; reflections from the past", "The Cotter family initally acquired one of the original 100 acre sections in the valley [and] later purchased a further 880 acres which were sold in 1926 to St Patrick's College". Apart from the modern framer's label, there is as yet no evidence to confirm whether this painting shows a house on the St Pat's site or the earlier site.
