New Wear on the Wye

Description: 

Cliffs, presumably near New Weir (spelled “New Wear” in the title), stretch upward, taking up most of the left half of the print. In the foreground, at the foot of the cliffs, is a small house. A sailboat floats on the river. To the right of the boat and further downstream, the wharf of the ironworks extends into the water. The river cuts around a patch of trees that provides the background for the wharf, and apparently doubles back on itself after passing more trees. A forest, with two plumes of smoke, takes up the right margin of the print, two plumes of smoke rising from the tops of the trees. At the horizon, two or three hills, possibly wooded, meet the sky. Some clouds hang from the topmost border of the print.3Cliffs, presumably near New Weir (spelled “New Wear” in the title), stretch upward, taking up most of the left half of the print.
