A View in Glamorganshire

DEVIS, Anthony (1729 - 1816)

A View in Glamorganshire

Media: oil on board

Size: 36.6 x 45.5 cm

Acquired: 1957; Bequest; Mrs W.H. Coombe Tennant

Accession Number: NMW A 423

This painting is a pendant to A View on the River Neath in Glamorganshire. A likely identification of the view as Britton Ferry is suggested by the boat carrying horses and passengers. In 1815, Thomas Rees wrote that at Britton Ferry 'nature and art...are co-operating to spread before the observer, scenes of the most bewitching enchantment.'
