Biographies

A watercolourist and lithographer, Stopps produced many scenes from the Victorian goldfields.

watercolourist and lithographer, was born in Devon and studied art with the Exeter painter and lithographer William Spreatt.

The views were possibly taken by Alexander Fox whose 1857 photographs of Bendigo were lithographed by Stopps for a number of illustrated letterheads: for instance a letter dated 9 March 1857 (LT) from John Lees at Kangaroo Flats, Bendigo to his wife was written on Stopps’s Pall Mall, Sandhurst, from View Point . Stopps was listed in the Melbourne Directory for 1858-59 at 54 Collins Street, East Melbourne. In 1860, on the eve of his departure with the Burke and Wills expedition, Ludwig Becker bequeathed his lithographic table to him. Subsequently employed as an assistant lithographer in the Department of Crown Lands, Stopps was one ...
