Port Erin

Date made: n.d.

Artist: Lynam, Lucy Emma

Description: “A wild walk and beautiful descent to Port Erin; a fleet of near forty sails and nets in the circular rocky harbour - white houses at different heights on the bank.” (Dorothy Wordsworth, Journal of a Tour in the Isle of Man 1828, M 10561)

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).
