About this artwork

Peter De Wint was an influential advocate for watercolor as the best medium for capturing the beauty of British scenery. The artist is revered for the vigorous manner and sweeping gestures of his work, and here he evoked a blustery day under a threatening, pink-tinged sky—a glimpse of the sublime.
