richly coloured watercolour is part of a portfolio of 43 sheets
entitled 'Studies in Cunnemara [sic] County Galway'. A number of the
studies were engraved as black and white illustrations in Mr and Mrs
Samuel C. Hall's lavish guide book, Ireland: its Scenery, Character
&c, published in three volumes in 1843. The thatched cottage built
into the bank gives a real sense of the living conditions of the
ordinary people of Connemara who scratched an existence from the poor
soil in the decade before the Great Famine.
