Birmingham artist William Henry Vernon painted many landscapes of the west of England but it was his vistas of North Wales that brought him most success. Between 1858 and 1892 Vernon exhibited at the Royal Academy, the British Institution and the Suffolk Street Gallery of the Royal Society of British Artists.
