Toss Woollaston arrived in Māwhera / Greymouth in 1949. He wrote of the town, “Greymouth… a crowd of grey churches and buildings at all angles, with high green and bushy hills just as sharp and angular rising behind – not mine yet.”He purchased a house on the hill above the town, and painted this work for the 1952 Group exhibition in Christchurch – a view from the front verandah looking out to the Tasman Sea.
