View of Ullswater in Cumbria, Northern England. Ullswater is the second largest lake in an area known as the Lake District and which is renowned for its mountainous and picturesque landscape. Although this work in entitled ‘View of Ulleswater from Gobray Park’, it is more likely that the artist was in Gobarrow park – a small fell less than 1600 feet in height. Gobarrow Park is associated with Wordsworth because it was near here that the poet and his sister saw rows of beautiful daffodils which inspired him to write his most famous work ‘The Daffodils’.
