Museum

"Waterfall near Ambleside" (1786) by Francis Towne (1739-1816) - Pen and ink and watercolour on paper (Right). In 1786 Towne joined two Exeter friends, James White and John Merivale, on a tour of the Lake District. Ambleside served as a base for the party during most of their tour, and Towne therefore explored the area in some depth. He made various panormaic views of the vicinity but especially a number of versions of the secluded waterfalls of Stock Ghyll. In this example, his elevated and close viewpoint makes the subject both more intense and more dramatic. Two barely discernible figures on the far left-hand rock provide a sense of scale.
