Wales Illustrated

by Henry Gastineau

published by Jones & Co., Temple of the Muses, Finsbury Square, London
(1836)


Original Steel Engravings over 175 years old

Sheet size: approx. 5¼ x 7¼ inches

HENRY GASTINEAU (1791-1876) was a topographer and landscape artist. He trained as an engraver and then studied at the Royal Academy Schools, after which he travelled extensively in Great Britain painting the scenery as he went. He was elected Associate to the Old Watercolour Society (AOWS) in 1821 and became a full member (OWS) in 1823. From 1827, Gastineau worked in Camberwell as a drawing master, where he died on January 17th, 1876.

Engravers such as T. Barber, H. Jorden and F.R. Hay produced the steel engravings (a process which became very popular during the nineteenth century) for the Wales Illustrated book. Henry Gastineau's interpretation of the landscape was romantic and sublime; concentrating on the wild and romantic scenery of rocks, cataracts and rushing streams.
