- Curator's comments
- The title is given as it was when the drawing was acquired. This is a view on the River Monnow, looking upstream. The town of Monmouth is to the right, fields are to the left. The bridge, long demolished, was Tibb's Bridge. The church is the parish church, St Mary's.(information from Dr Michael Rowlands, author of a book on Monnow Bridge and Gate, 1994).
Michael Angelo Rooker's, 'A view of Monmouth with the church of St Mary's bathers in the foreground' shows a similar view of Monmouth, depicting the same timber framed building and the smaller building with a double arch between the house and St Mary's church. Rooker's view of Monmouth was on sale in the Christie's Andrew Wyld: Connoisseur Dealer sale on Tuesday 10th July 2012. See corresponding sales catalogue, p. 92, lot 105.
