Thank you for your comment Brian, we are pleased that you enjoyed the catalogue and that you are impressed with John Brett Forest Cove, Cardigan Bay. The work is currently in store and I am afraid we are unable to put it on display for next week. Due to our busy exhibition and loan programme gallery changes are programmed months in advance and the Victorian Gallery has just been rehung to display some of our Turner watercolours. We can arrange for you to see the work in store but we do ask for a minimum of two weeks notice to arrange these appointments. The Victorian Gallery does include a work by Brett and other works that were part of the 'Pastures Green and Dark Satanic Mills' exhibition. We hope you enjoy your visit on Tuesday!

Dear Curator,

I have just purchased 'Pastures Green and Dark Satanic Mills' and have found it wonderfully informative. In addition to the quite spectacular Turner watercolours, I was also especially impressed by the wonderfully bright 'Forest Cove, Cardigan Bay', by John Brett, a painting unfamiliar to me. I am bringing a small group of friends to the museum this Tuesday and wondered if there would be any chance of finding a position for this painting in the Victorian Gallery.

Dear Mary,

Thank you very much for your enquiry. Your painting sounds very interesting. I would be very grateful if you could send us a photograph of it (digital or printed). Usually we can tell you a certain amount just from an image, and then say whether we need to examine the object itself. For that, we might ask you to make an appointment or to come to one of our

I have a very similar, in original frame, Brett painting to this one, painted in 1882,showing the cove at Cwm Reiglas from above.

I would appreciate any comments from you, as I trust a National Museum so much more than auction houses and art dealers and am unsure what to do with it at the moment!
