Called ‘Landing a Salmon’ when it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1849, the artist has shown himself bringing a salmon to the net held by a keeper, Robert Buckland. The spectator is General Cartwright, a friend of Lord Penrhyn. The artist spent some time in Wales between 1848 and 1849, as other known pictures of Ogwen river and a lake in North Wales testify. A number of these pictures were painted jointly with Thomas Sidney Cooper.
