In a corner on the Macintyre (Thunderbolt in an encounter with police at Paradise Creek) is a 1895 painting by the Australian artist Tom Roberts.[1] The painting is thought to depict the bushranger Captain Thunderbolt in a shootout with police.[1]

Roberts painted the picture while staying at Newstead, a station near Inverell, New South Wales, where he also painted his other significant bushranging work Bailed up.[1]

The painting was acquired by the National Gallery of Australia in 1971.[1]
