I love this picture , now sitting proudly in the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff. A snip at £557,218 .... what recession. It is though quite beautiful and was bought with the help of the National Heritage Memorial Fund and the Charity Art Fund plus a few individual donors, so that's allright then.
The artist, William Dyce was a Scottish realist painter who came to Wales when his health was failing in the late1850s. He didn't last long I'm afraid.
I've got a photocopy in a small wooden frame. Suits me fine..
