Born in Poland, Gracius Broinowski (1837-1913) came to Australia at the age of 20, apparently to avoid conscription. Arriving in Portland, Victoria he worked for a printer and publisher, then spent many years travelling around Australia. From 1880 Broinowski taught painting in Sydney and then lithographed the birds of New Zealand and the mammals and birds of Australia.
