A contemporary of David Cox, Copley Fielding, George Cattermole, and Samuel Prout, he kept to the old manner of water-colour painting. Gastineau also devoted a great deal of his time to teaching, both privately and at various schools. Early in life he built for himself a house, Norfolk Lodge, in Cold Harbour Lane, Camberwell, and lived there until his death on 17 January 1876 in his eighty-sixth year. He was then the oldest living member of the Old Society of Painters in Water-colours.
The prints in this work are extensive, they cover a wide range of views in Wales and meet a high standard. The picturesque scenery within Wales is conveyed well as are the many castles, churches and other buildings of interest. The people in various parts of the country are expressed within their surroundings showing their way of life, therefore, their culture.The early industrial views such as Nant y Glo are particularly interesting showing the sheer scale of the industrial revolution in Wales and its impact upon the Landscape. . . .. these are priced according to condition from £5 for an unmounted untinted with some flaws to a tinted hopefully more perfect version or proof at £10 eaAs is common at this time the work was sold in many formats loose to bind yourself; south Wales; North Wales etc so the list is probably not yet complete . . ie PRODUCED IN VARIOUS COMBINATIONS, NORTH WALES, SOUTH WALES & COMBINED EDITIONS.
Wales Illustrated, in a Series of Views, Comprising the Picturesque Scenery, Towns, Castles, Seats of the Nobility and Gentry, Antiquities etc. Engraved in Steel from Original Drawings by Henry Gastineau. Accompanied by Historical and Topographical Descriptions . .
