Painting E094382 - Bomaderry Childrens Home

This painting is titled 'Bomaderry Childrens Home'. Babies and young children were removed from their families under the Aborigines Protection Act, and placed in the home to be raised away from their family and culture. Older children were then moved to Cootamundra Girls' Home or Kinchela Boys' Home.

Printed in acrylics on board by Kevin Butler, 1997.
