Turner produced many studies of Dolbadarn Castle and its surroundings both during and after his excursion of 1799. He had, however, first seen and drawn the subject during his Welsh tour of the previous year. This study was produced in the wake of the earlier visit, anticipating the scale and atmosphere of the later Welsh works.
