Richard Wilson: 'The Valley of the Dee, with Chester in the Distance'
The view is downstream from the village of Holt in Denbighshire, North Wales. The towers of Chester Cathedral and St John's Church are just visible in the background. The hills in the distance may be in Lancashire, beyond the River Mersey.

This view is probably taken from further down stream than 'Holt Bridge on the River Dee'. It may have been exhibited at the Society of Artists in 1761.
