County Cork - The Cork River c.1840

County Cork - The Cork River c.1840

The Cork River , (The River Lee ) by William H. Bartlett, sketched from below the Glanmire Road and close to where the Glanmire River meets the Lee shows Black Rock Castle (much as it stands today) in the distance across the River Lee which opens out to Lough Mahon en route back out to sea from the crucially important quays in the city (see close-up detail inset below).

Once more we see the incredible detail of activity captured by Bartlett with numerous commercial and pleasure vessels moving up and down the channel. Again we see the early steam boats emitting their black coal smoke and signalling the early dawning of the industrial age and the death of the commercial canvas powered sailing vessels. A small group of people in the foreground , enjoy the fine summer weather (based on the full leaves on the trees and calm sea) , presumably in their own gated garden, providing an atmosphere and perspective to the panoramic behind.

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.

A beautifully framed reproduction set behind glass with a choice of a pale palm green or pine green suede inner surrounds with a choice of two fine antique style wooden frames; gold leaf or gold and mahogony finish. Prints are available in A3, A2 and A1 sizes with proportionately larger frames to suit all decor and wall space.

To see which one you prefer simply select the frame type choice below and it will appear in the larger picture above.
