WAG 1003


Snowdon was probably the scene most often painted by Varley. He made two sketching trips to Wales in 1799 and 1802. This watercolour was probably made later from sketches he made on these trips. This watercolour was presented to the Walker, along with several others, by James Smith of Blundellsands. He hoped his gift would encourage the Walker to collect more examples of early British watercolours.
