[Newton Abbey] At Newton - Trim. Co. Meath.
9th October 1864.
Ink and watercolour. Sheet 255 x 465mm (10 x 18¼"), laid on the original card. Backing card soiled.
The ruins of Newton Abbey, a 13th century Augustinian monastery. Suppressed in the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1537, it is now an Irish National Monument. In the foreground is "the Tomb of the Jealous Man and Woman", that of Lucas and Jane Dillon. Sir Lucas Dillon (1530-92, judge of the trial of Nicholas Nugent, hanged for treason in 1582) and his wife are separated by a sword of state, which may suggest some estrangement between the couple.
