Connemara is to be found in Connacht – one of the Provinces of Ireland situated in the west of Ireland. In Ancient Ireland, it was one of the fifths ruled by a “king of over-kings”. In Gaelic historical annals from old Irish it was described as a western kingdom of learning, the seat of the greatest and wisest druids and magicians and where people are famed for their eloquence, their handsomeness and their ability to pronounce true judgement.
Irish artist Owen Harris travels the Irish countryside capturing landscapes and seascapes characterised by dramatic skies, wild open waterways, and mountains sweeping down to the coastline. This wonderful painting is from the artist’s Landscapes and Seascapes of Ireland series and is available framed.
