View of the Avon Gorge

  • Regular price £25.00

This is one of the finest of Danby's Bristol paintings and was painted as a companion to 'A Scene in Leigh Woods', which shows a couple relaxing in a glade. Here, we look down the Avon Gorge with the entrance of Nightingale Valley, leading to Leigh Woods, on the left. It would have been an ambitious undertaking for Danby to paint a pair of paintings and it is likely it was a commission. The patron is not known, but it might have been Richard Bright, an eminent merchant, who lived nearby at Ham Green.  
Oil on mahogany panel, 1822.
