Landscape, North Wales shows a view near Portmadoc on the edge of Snowdonia. Ginesi and her husband, the artist Raymond Coxon (1896-1997), lived in Hammersmith for over sixty years and made repeated trips to Wales, the Pennines and the Lake District - areas where Ginesi felt, 'the landscape moves ¿ up and down, and round about'. The swiftly applied layers of colour show her response to the form of the landscape. They also reveal a knowledge of French landscape painters, notably Paul Cézanne and André Derain.
