"ANZAC Christmas" by Violet Teague 
(1872 - 1951)

This adoration of the Shepherds was painted as a war memorial altarpiece for St. Peter`s Chruch, Kinglake and dedicated on 15 November, 1922.

To ensure its preservation and to extend knowledge of it, the Parish of Whittlesea offered it to St. Paul`s Cathedral on permanent loan.  After restoration and reframing, arranged by the Friends of the Cathedral, it was hung here in September, 1996.
