View from the Dublin Approach to Heywood, in the Queen's Co.y Ireland, The Seat of Frederick Trench Esquire.
Lithograph with large margins, printed area 225 x 320mm (8¾ x 12½").
Landscape with river. Amateur lithograph by the army officer and politician Frederick William Trench (c.1777-1859), whose father owned Heywood, Ballynakill in Queen's County. Trench was also keenly interested in architecture: in 1815 he proposed a vast monument to British naval and military victories over France on the site which became Trafalgar Square, and in 1824 he launched a project for an embankment on the north side of the Thames (in conjunction with which a long print of the project was produced).
Ex Collection: The Late Honourable Christopher Lennox-Boyd. For Trench's embankment scheme see refs. 23749, 27468 &c.
