Gorey Castle, Jersey

dated 1860

Pencil, watercolour and bodycolour | 46.2 x 32.5 cm (whole object) | RCIN 920248

The son of Victoria’s watercolour tutor William Leitch, Richard painted three views of Jersey ʻaccording to the Queen’s requestsʼ in 1860, which suggests Victoria specified the subjects. One such view was this romanticised scene of the medieval Gorey Castle (Mont Orgueil) with a sleeping fisherman on the quay, where the royal yacht had anchored for a night during a tour the previous summer.
