From the Collection


Cotman toured Wales in 1800, and made a series of drawings and watercolours of Welsh subjects in the following years. This watercolour of Harlech Castle in North Wales is related to a sketch he drew on 30 July 1800.
Harlech Castle was built in the thirteenth century by Edward I, and was often represented by artists at this time. It features in watercolours by Girtin, Varley and Turner as well as Cotman.
