Oil on Canvas. The Falls of Ogwen, North Wales Inscribed and dated 1840 Original Frame Framed dimensions: 18 inches x 14.5 inches This is a charming little piece of antique folk art. It is almost certainly painted from an engraving of this scene which is featured in a 19th Century travel guide: “Wanderings and Excursions in North Wales” by Thomas Rosco (1836). The engraving, by William Radclyffe, was from an original study by the great landscape painter David Cox (1783 - 1859). This is a beautiful interpretation, and very well painted in a naïve style of its own. It features a mountainous landscape beauty spot in Snowdonia, North Wales and details a group of sightseers led by guides viewing the falls. It is inscribed on the back 'Falls of the Ogwen into Nant Frangon North Wales 1840'. Location: Snowdonia, North Wales. The panoramic Ogwen falls is at the site where the Ogwen river emerges from the western end of Llyn Ogwen (Lake Ogwen) and begins its journey along the rugged Nant Ffrancon valley to the sea.
