"See no. 31. Tyntagel Castle is on the coast of Cornwall, England. It was the birthplace of King Arthur. " Mr. Richards has never painted a more striking picture than his Tyntagel Castle. The tall cliffs rising from the sea, their sides hollowed out into great caverns in which the storms play, and the grim old castle seeming as if it were a natural growth from the summit, are exceedingly impressive. The foreground, at the foot of the rocks, where great masses of stone have broken off and fallen is very realistic; and the water, stretching away into the fog, with a light streak along the horizon, is painted as few artists are able to represent water. The effect is that of early morning." [P. 14; see serial 03860014 for commentary on artist.]
