For your consideration is this large, framed original painting done by Rev. William Louis Beaufort (1771-1849) titled, "Aynwick Castle Northumberland" circa 1790-1830. William was born in Meath in 1771. His father was the cartographer, diarist and Rector of Navan, the Venerable Daniel Augustus Beaufort. William became an accomplished artist excelling in large scale watercolor paintings and was proficient in drawing in both pencil and pen and ink. His paintings also suggest a keen interest in architecture, as buildings sometimes dominate his compositions. Beaufort became the Canon of Rathcooney, County Cork, and was also the Rector at Glanmire, County Cork, where he died in 1849 at age 78. The painting shows the Aynwick Castle in Northumberland surrounded by a wall of trees and foliage. William used a darker color palate giving the painting a dark theme, but it is beautifully contrasted by the setting sun in the background which casts a golden light over the castle. The painting is set in a large gold gilt with a highly decorated frame featuring a gold colored plaque on the bottom reading, "William Louis Beaufort. British / 1771-1849 / Aynwick Castle Northumberland". The painting shows fair condition as there is a fairly large hole in the bottom middle with small cracks and scratches to the paint throughout. The frame shows good condition with some wear from its antique age and fading paint. The visible art measures 23 1/4" L x 41 1/4" W, while the entire piece measures 30 3/8" L x 48 1/4" W.*
