David Cox was one of the leading landscape painters of the nineteenth century. He became famous for the freshness and immediacy with which he captured the effects of changing light and weather on the landscape, and particularly for his depictions of rugged Welsh hillsides, breezy open fields, and broad windswept beaches. This sparkling seaside view was made in August 1840, when Cox visited Blackpool with his friend William Roberts.

Presented by J Arthur Kendrick, 1925.
