Sudbrook Chapel

Henry Gastineau (1791-1876) was a topographer and landscape artist who traveled throughout the UK painting as he went.

Engravers such as T. Barber, H. Jorden, H. Lacey and F.R. Hay, then produced the steel engravings (a process which became very popular during the nineteenth century) for the Wales Illustrated book which was published by Jones and Co. Temple of the Muses, Finsbury Square, London.

Henry Gastineau's interpretation of the landscape was romantic and sublime; concentrating on the wild and romantic scenery of rocks, cataracts and rushing streams.
