A fishing boat brought ashore near Conway Castle
Philippe de Loutherbourg was one of many artists who interpreted the scenery around Conway in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. In this version, the castle looms high on a hill to the left, silhouetted against the sky. Dominating the estuary of the River Conway in North Wales, it has here been portrayed as a romantic ruin. A small cart stands on a sloping path to the left, depicted as running down to the rocky shoreline. Here eight men struggle to drag their heavy boat ashore from a foaming sea, with a rakish cutter running inshore beyond.
