The Wye Tour and Its Artists
Available in Stock
In the 1740s, a wealthy clergyman began to provide his guests with a picturesque river trip from his home up the River Wye. Gaining a reputation, the route inspired a commercial tour taking passengers from Ross to Chepstow, pausing at Monmouth and Tintern Abbey. This exhibition catalogue tells the story of how the tour evolved and displays over 100 examples of the work of 18th century artists who took the trip and recorded the views.
