  • Provenance
    Hassan Shaida Collection

    Illustrated by Simon Whistler, On a Glass Lightly (2004), p.77, where the artist describes the piece thus... 'The difficulty here was to convey the enormous height of the castle above the valley floor with its stream. Early sunlight pours down the hill opposite'. The goblet is one of a series of seven depicting Welsh landscapes inspired by J M W Turner's sketching trips to Wales, resulting from a tour of Wales in 1988 in which Whistler retraced a route taken by Turner in 1798.
