Peel Castle Isle of Man

Date made: July 1851

Artist: Lynam, Lucy Emma

Description: “Numbers of small boats were putting off from the shore to their respective vessels, and the sand was covered with fishermen, who were dragging down their nets to the boats. Others had set sail and were warping slowly out to sea, round a jutting rock, upon which high above them stood nodding one of the towers of the castle; the effect was striking as we watched them slowly disappearing round the island.” (The Duke of Rutland’s ‘Journal of a Tour through North and South Wales and the Isle of Man’ 1797, M 02435)

The painting is from a series of works by Mrs Lucy Emma Lynam, born 1834. It is thought that Lucy Emma Lynam painted the works while staying with her daughter and son-in-law on the Isle of Man. Her daughter, also called Lucy Emma, married a Manxman Sidney Alfred Pizey Kermode, who was the Reverend of Onchan (1862-1925).
