another from the same area - more towards the quarry  ...this artist passed away in 1916 in Deganwy ...so all these paintings would be prior to this date ...In 1877 he moved to Tywyn near Conwy in North Wales. Here he founded, with Edward Norbury, at Plas Mawr, the Royal Cambrian Academy in 1881 and became its Vice President. In 1889 he moved to Deganwy where he spent the rest of his life.

I was saddened to read about the Glasgow School of Art's fire yesterday, I knew the building well, having worked nearby for many years, an iconic piece of Glasgow's history, todays news seems devastating, it will be a major restoration if not impossible.

 The Mackintosh building was completed in 1909 based on designs by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Scotland's most-lauded designer.

It's terrible news, the latest fire was far worse than 4 years ago! I hope they can rebuild it, bit what is causing the fires?

The first one was started by a student's project that caught fire through being placed too close to a heater.  No idea abut this one, though.

Not unexpected, but extremely sad news.

Glasgow School of Art in danger of 'sudden collapse'

Parts of the Glasgow School of Art Mackintosh building are to be dismantled after it was ravaged by fire earlier this month.
Glasgow City Council said surveys had revealed substantial movement in the building's walls and that a sudden collapse of parts of it was likely.
Work to partially dismantle sections of the building is expected to begin as a "matter of urgency".
