About this artwork

Paul Sandby was the first English artist to seek the picturesque in the broken surfaces and timeworn buildings of Scotland and Wales. In his many landscapes and views of castles, Sandby incorporated buildings, townspeople, animals, and other minor elements as details that heighten the sense of the picturesque. The balance of buildings with the flow of the landscape is perhaps one of the most attractive features of Sandby’s work.
