Dargle near Dublin
Medium: Aquatint, coloured
View of the Dargle River in County Wicklow, Ireland. The Dargle River rises in the Wicklow mountains and flows east through the Dargle valley until it meets the sea at Bray. The artist of this work is Morgan but it is the engraver Francis Jukes (1747-1812) who is better known. Jukes, who was based in Holborn in London, became celebrated for the quality of his engraving and aquatint work. By the turn of the 19th century Jukes was working primarily on landscape paintings like this one.
