‘Dolbadarn Castle’ by J. M. W. Turner is an important composition because it represents a long period of study of the Welsh landscape. Turner became fascinated with North Wales and particularly studied the history of the slaughter of the bards by Edward I and the tragic infighting resulting in the long captivity of Owain Goch (Owain the Red), by his own brother. Both subjects inspired some of his most poignant paintings.
