County Cork - Scene at Gouganne Barra c.1840

County Cork - Scene at Gouganne Barra c.1840

A moving and detailed scene of Gougane Barra (c.1840) by William H. Bartlett, of the pilgrims gathered around Saint Finbarr's wooden cross, the original of which, no longer exists This is perhaps the only known visual record of the original cross itself (see close-up detail inset below) . Set against the backdrop of dark hills and teaming streams it is a remarkable testament to the veneration attached to this extraordinary location at the time of his visit to County Cork. 

There is little one can add verbally to this outstanding and important illustration which visually captures a long lost scene of Irish antiquity and religious tradition. 

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.
