Clifton Rocks from Rownham Fields

  • Sale
  • Regular price £25.00


This is one of Danby's finest paintings from his years in Bristol. His main interest is the contrast between the cool shade and wasteland weeds with the sunlit patch where ill-shod boys loll in the heat. The dramatic Avon Gorge is relegated to the background, but Danby was careful to include the detail which makes it unmistakable. The Old Hotwell House is on the right, and the foliage of the oak tree is carefully arranged to reveal the ruined windmill on the summit of St Vincent's Rocks and the old lime-kiln at their foot. 
Oil on panel, circa 1821.
