Lake District Art

Painters have revelled in the scenic beauties of the Lake District for more than two centuries. In A Tour of the English Lakes: with Thomas Gray and Joseph Farington RA, 18th century paintings are compared and contrasted with the same views today. It makes very interesting reading.

On an earlier version of this page we introduced a variety of Lake District art, products of brush and camera, starting with Turner’s “The Vale of Keswick”. Several of these products are now unavailable so we’re rebuilding the page and it will be here shortly. For the present here’s just one very affordable canvas print of a Victorian view of the Patterdale end of Ullswater.

Look out for more as we rebuild the site, and check the pages indexed here in the right hand column (below, if you’re on a small screen). If you’re looking for art in the form of vintage railway posters, take a look at our Lake District Railway Posters page.
