View of Brading in the Isle of Wight by S. Barth. Brading, situated in the east of the island, has been a busy port since the Bronze Age but it was during the Roman occupation of the 3rd century that it was especially important. A large villa here was the largest on the Isle of Wight and it is thought that its success was due to the ease of access at the nearby harbours. S. Barth was a prolific landscape painter who worked between 1797 and 1809, he travelled around Great Britain and his best known works are of Kent, Wales and the South West.
