Wildflowers with a View of Dublin Bay from Kingstown


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description In the foreground is a magnificent stand of poppies, daisies, and other wildflowers, and beyond is a panoramic view of Dublin Bay. In the background, the hazy outline of the Howth peninsula stretches across the horizon, Dublin's pier bisects the estuary, and the manmade harbor of Dun Laoghaire, then known as Kingstown, is visible through the wildflowers at the base of the slope in the foreground. Nicholl was a self-taught artist who specialized in topographical views.
