The Clinic

Prahran Foot Clinic is located at number 5 Izett Street, Prahran which interestingly was believed to be the home of Andrew Izett Watson after whom the street was named.

Izett Watson as he was known was an Australian artist who studied at the National Gallery School, Melbourne and worked between 1870 and 1900.  Watson’s most famous work was a collaborative piece with Thaddeus Welch in the form of an enormous 1000sq foot painted canvas depicting the events of the Eureka Rebellion.  This work was exhibited as a painted cyclorama at the ‘Battle of Waterloo’ Cyclorama Building in Fitzroy c. 1891. The Age reported in 1891 that thousands flocked to see the epic work of art.

Prahran Foot Clinic currently holds one of the only known original prints of this piece and it is on display at the clinic.
