The Ruins of Fast Castle, Berwickshire, Scotland: The Wolf's Crag of the Bride of Lammermoor

William Trost Richards (American, 1833–1905)
Richards is famous for his paintings of stormy, rocky coasts, which were widely exhibited throughout the United States and England. Gloomy and dramatic, this view of ruins above a pounding sea comments on the forces of time and nature.
