View of an unusual summer house on Crumlin Common, Ireland. The village of Crumlin takes its name from the Irish word Cruimghlinn, which means ‘Crooked Glen’, because the area was once a forest, thick with oak trees. The artist, Francis Jukes (1745-1812), wanted to depict this summer house simply because it was so unusual and caught his attention.
