  • This painting, together with Dinas Bran from Llangollen (B1976.7.83) was commissioned to celebrate Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn’s (1749–1789) coming of age in 1769. The young baronet paid Wilson £50 on account for both pictures in February 1770, and soon afterward they hung prominently in his grand new London house, 20 St. James’s Square, built by Robert Adam between 1771 and 1774. Wilson’s view was taken from a position on a rock above a cliff at Nant y Belan, at the edge of Wynnstay Park. The view is now obscured, but in the eighteenth century it afforded this dramatic scene westward along the Dee valley to Dinas Brân at Llangollen. What is now called “New Bridge” can be seen on the river in the middle ground, while further away in the distance is probably the mansion of Trefor Hall, the neighboring estate to Wynnstay. Behind Dinas Brân, the mountains of the northeastern range of Snowdonia can be seen. Glowing light from the west shows that the time is evening, complementing Wilson's companion painting of Dinas Brân, in which light comes from the east. The painting was said to have been executed in a tent on the spot, though this seems unlikely on account of its size.
