Davis chose a spot far-removed from the industry associated with the Rye Water and River Liffey around Leixlip. Human activity is suggested only by the whitewashed farm building glimpsed between the trees. Davis painted the picture on one of his return visits to Ireland, perhaps with his wife, who was from Co. Kildare. He is best known for his views around Liverpool, in Wales and in Scotland.

National Gallery of Ireland Canvas Prints almost feel like having the real painting on your wall. Printed on Hahnemühle Leonardo Canvas using ultra chrome HDR pigment inks, our canvas prints come rolled in a protective tube with the paintings information.

In order to preserve the image and prevent unnecessary fading, the canvas should not be exposed to direct sunlight and its harmful UV rays.
