- Thomas Creswick RA (5 February 1811 – 28 December 1869) was an English landscape painter and illustrator, and one of the best-known members of the Birmingham School of landscape painters. Biography Creswick was born in Sheffield (at the time it was within Derbyshire).
- He was the son of Thomas Creswick and Mary Epworth and educated at Hazelwood, near Birmingham. In his early practice he set an example, then too much needed, of diligent study of nature out of doors, painting on the spot all the substantial part of several of his pictures. English and Welsh streams may be said to have formed his favourite subjects, and generally British rural scenery, mostly under its cheerful, calm and pleasurable aspects, in open daylight.
- To the left and right are impressive views of the Welsh rolling hills, in the centre you are drawn to the river stream which has many rocky stone boulders.
- At Birmingham he first began to paint. His earliest appearance as an exhibitor was in 1827, at the Society of British Artists in London; in the ensuing year he sent to the Royal Academy the two pictures named Llyn Gwynant, Morning, and Carnarvon Castle. In 1842 he was elected an associate, and in 1850 a full member of the Royal Academy, which, for several years before his death, numbered hardly any other full members representing this branch of art.
- Betws-y-coed (Welsh: [ˈbɛtʊs ə ˈkɔɨd] English: prayer house in the wood) is a village and community in the Conwy valley in Conwy County Borough, Wales, located in the historic county of Caernarfonshire, right on the boundary with Denbighshire, in the Gwydir Forest. It is now a very popular visitor destination in the Snowdonia National Park.Toponymy
