This work comes from a collection of drawings and watercolours by B. Stanton. The artist evidently travelled widely in the UK and in Ireland and Switzerland, recording picturesque landscapes and local landmarks. The drawings feature natural beauty spots such as views in the Lake District and County Kerry in Ireland, as well as impressive man-made structures - both feats of engineering such as the Menai Bridge, and romantic ruins such as Beaumaris and Carew Castle in Wales. The artist draws with charming attention to detail, featuring small figures, birds, boats and panoramic townscapes to give the landscapes a sense of scale and grandeur.
