This charming watercolour was painted by the gifted amateur artist Maud Ethel Julius (nee Lake) who was married to the distinguished military officer Lieutenant Colonel de Vere Julius,Commanding Officer,2nd Battalion,the Royal Sussex Regiment. In September 1924 and April 1925, while stationed in Singapore, Mrs Julius held two private exhibitions of her Malayan views. The Singapore Free Press reported at the time of her second exhibition, 'The artist has shown admirable discernment in the selection of her subjects,which include picturesque scenes on the Perak River,the Taiping Hills,the Bukit Timah Golf Course,the entrance to Singapore Harbour,St.John's Island,Kuala Kangsar,the Gap,Arundel,the Changi shore,Johore and the last hole of the Selangor Golf Course,and so excellent is her work that even the connoisseur could find few faults. Whilst her sea and cloud effects particularly strike the eye with their vivid naturalness,there are two paintings of Chinese temples - one an interior at Telok Ayer and the other an exterior at Balestier- which are real works of Art.'
