Vintage 1930s Ink Sketch Drawing Art, Stone Bridge at Llandovery Wales Landscape
Old Medieval Stone Bridge at Llandovery Wales, Antique 1936 Ink Drawing Made by British Artist Walter Monckton Keesey Signed and Unframed, Pre World War II British Topography Studies in Impressionist Style
Item 50: "Nr Llandovery" 36 on drawing; "Near Llandovery" on mounting. This is Not a print but an original artwork; No professionally verified authorship. A lovely original pen and ink drawing on Endsor and Newton Bristol Board signed with the single letter "K," dated 36 for 1936. This is one from a large collection of topographical views mainly from the lake district and all dated between 1936 and 1940; most of these are of bridges and churches. These may be for a book or for publication. Please note this is an original pen and ink drawing and NOT a print. I have tried to research the artist (definitely a professional artist) - so far my best attribution is to Walter Monckton Keesey A.R.E. 1887 -1970 who published several sketchbooks of his topographical work and pen and ink drawings for postcard publication, and sometimes signed his work with a single "K."
Llandovery (Welsh: Llanymddyfri) is a community and market town in Carmarthenshire, Wales, lying on the River Tywi. Llandovery lies immediately to the north of Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr Geopark, an area whose geological heritage is celebrated. These designated landscapes are centred on Bannau Sir Gâr or the Carmarthen Fans, themselves a part of the Black Mountain, an upland area which extends north towards the town as Mynydd Myddfai and Mynydd Bach Trecastell. Famous people associated with Llandovery include outlaw Twm Siôn Cati and hymn writer William Williams Pantycelyn.
