This painting shows an unidentified landscape, but it is highly likely to be one of the Pembrokeshire islands. Since 1949 Ray had lived in West London but each summer made a pilgrimage to the Pembrokeshire Coast, around St Martin’s Haven and Skomer Island, to write and paint. It is probable that this picture, dated 1967, was undertaken on one such pilgrimage. Within the seclusion of these islands she was inspired by the ever-changing landscape, rich bird life and the craggy rock formations. Ray Howard-Jones was a contemporary of artists such as David Jones, Graham Sutherland and John Piper. She was one of the few women to become an accredited War Artist, recording the coastal defences of South Wales and the D-day preparations around Cardiff Docks.
