Catalogue Note

Living in Manchester and Liverpool, Whaite travelled England, Wales and Ireland painting landscapes. One work titled The Lower Lake, Killarney was exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1878, shortly after the present watercolour was made. Under a bright sky, travellers make their way along the road in Bantry Bay, Co. Cork. In comparing with William McEvoy's view towards Glengariff in the following lot, here we are offered the view across the water.
