Photographer's Note

This is the work of Rex Whistler, an artist that I have shared with you before; I wanted to share this main part of the mural that he painted at Plas Newydd, having already shown you the end panels.

Rex Whistler was a regular visitor to Plas Newydd in the 1930s. In 1936 - 1938 he painted the largest canvas painting in the UK.
(The canvas had to be specially commissioned from a company in France, in order for it to cover the wall completely.)
It is a trompe-l'oeil seascape painting that fills the whole wall of the dining room with an imagined scene of Italianate churches, castles, Snowdonian mountains and a complete harbour wall - with tricks of perspective that mean that the scenes change when seen from different parts of the room.

The wet footprints are just one example, as no matter where you stand in the room the feet are always pointing towards you!
The mural measures 58 x12 feet or 17.7 x 3.7 m.

Two more pictures in the workshop.

Thanks for visiting.
