The White Barn behind Rathfarnum
Engraver: Jukes, Francis
Medium: Aquatint with etching, coloured
View of a barn near Rathfarnham in Ireland. Francis Jukes (1745-1812), the artist, wrote the following lines about this picture,
"This is a very curious building, the singularity of which much attracted my notice. The stairs, by which you ascend it, are on the outside; and having a parapet wall, the ascent is rendered easy and safe. At the top the prospect is very beautiful, commanding a view of Lord Ely’s and Mt Palliser’s park’s and of the country, as far as the mountains. It is two and a half miles from Dublin".
