View of the River Sheene, Ireland. The river Sheene or Sheen, is well known for its dramatic falls near Kenmare which are depicted in this aquatint. The River Sheen rises in the Caha mountains and flows through the valley to Kenmare Bay. This picture was drawn by artist Thomas Walmsley (1763-1806). Walmsley began his career as a scene painter at the Royal Opera House in London but his reputation grew and he exhibited his paintings of Views in Wales and Ireland at the Royal Academy.
