Francis Newbery was an influential artist and art educationist who, as headmaster/director, led the Glasgow School of Art (GSA) from 1885–1918. He was responsible, in part, for the appointment of Charles Rennie Mackintosh as architect of the School's new building, completed in 1909. When Newbery retired from the GSA he and his artist wife, Jessie, moved to the village of Corfe Castle in Dorset. This painting depicting the castle's ruins was one of a number of similar studies undertaken by Newbery as he sought to re-establish himself as a practising artist in later life.
