    Gwastadnant, a hamlet located in Caernarfonshire, Wales, was depicted by Williams in at least three further paintings: Winter in Gwastadnant, Gwastadnant 1 (Bonhams, 17 November 2010, £25,200 ) and Snow at Gwastadnant (Bonhams, 6 July 2011, £33,600) . The present composition is the largest and arguably most successful of the four and was selected by Williams to be printed in a linocut edition entitled Cottages at Gwastadnant.
