Description  
The majority of Maurice Wilks work, throughout his lifetime, were landscapes of Donegal, Antrim, Kerry and Connemara, although in later life he painted several highly sympathetic Dutch landscapes. Some of his critics accused him of being populist and sentimental but those with a broader perspective recognised his romantic spirit and sensitivity. This is a typical Donegal landscape, evoking a spirit of freedom from the rush and busyness of life. Donegal is located in the northern half of the west coast of Ireland, facing onto the Atlantic Sea. The viewer can wonder if the cottage remains today, just as Wilks painted it in the middle of the 20th Century.
