Date made: June 1884

Artist: Lynam, Lucy Emma

Description: “A fine green steep, on the edge of which stands the pretty chapel…a cross, on which is now placed a small sundial, the whole lately barbarously whitewashed, with church and roof -a glaring contrast to the grey thatched cottages, and green trees, which partly embower the church.” (Dorothy Wordsworth, Journal of a Tour in the Isle of Man, 10th July 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).
