The River Wye at Sugwas

Painted, 1906

This is a view looking west along the river Wye from above the Weir Cliff near Sugwas. In the distance the Black Mountains and Hay Bluff are seen partly obscured by cloud. The landscape is closely observed and well-finished from the middle distance, but the picture remains unfinished in the foreground. The group of children are unidentified. They are seen playing at a spot that may have been a favourite pic-nic site for local people, commanding fine views of the river and the distant hills on Welsh border. It is not known why Brian left this painting unfinished, but in August 1906, he left to go to the art school at Hospitalfields in Arbroath.
