WILSON, Richard (1714 - 1782)

Dinas Bran Castle, near Llangollen
Dinas Bran Castle, near Llangollen

Date: 1770 c.

Media: oil on canvas

Size: 108.6 x 146.7 cm

Acquired: 1919; Purchase

Accession Number: NMW A 3277

This painting includes a view of Dinas Bran, or Crow Castle, near Llangollen in Denbighshire. It is closely related to a view of this castle painted for Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn, exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1771. Dinas Bran is located near the river Dee, but is hemmed in by hills, rather than near a coastal plain, as here. X-ray suggests that this painting was begun as a view of Tivoli, abandoned, and completed after 1771 using a study of Dinas Bran.

I would like to apply for permission to use this image in a document linked to a Heritage Lottery application. How do I go about this?

Thank you
