County Cork - View from the Sugarloaf (Bantry Bay) c.1840

County Cork - View from the Sugarloaf (Bantry Bay) c.1840

Magnificent panoramic view (c. 1840) by William H. Bartlett from the Sugarloaf Mountain over Bantry Bay, Co. Cork by the brilliant artist William H. Bartlett. 

Bartlett describes a scene of the French planned invasion of Ireland where, just 35 years prior,   " In December 1796 a fleet of 17 sail , ten of which were of the line, anchored in Bantry Bay. The fleet had originally consisted of 25 ships of the line, but they had been scattered and dispersed by violent storms, and when the remnant of this proud armament reach the Irish coast, the dissension and jealousy which existed amongst the leaders of the expedition prevented them taking advantage of the opportunity that offered , of landing the troops without opposition. Humanly speaking, had this army landed, nothing could have opposed them: the city of Cork would in three days been in their hands, and Ireland would have been lost to England, for a time at least."

 The close-up detail inset below captures the detail of this fine work of art.

Please note the Pine Green mount board is not as quite dark as it appears in the frame image and the colour of the final print is closer to the detail sample from the picture inset below.
