Grace Cossington Smith visited the site of the Sydney Harbour Bridge many times during its construction, and produced some of the most memorable images of the project in a large number of sketchbook drawings. Her coloured pencil renditions of various aspects of the building express something of the bridge's architectural energy and its central symbolism as a marker of the modern age. This view of the bridge from the North Shore shares many of the elements of her oil painting of 1928-29 'The curve of the bridge', in the Gallery's collection.
