A rich collection of topographical paintings and drawings, selected from the library's archives.

Artists have long been drawn to the striking scenery of Wales; from ruined castles and abbeys to rugged mountainous areas, there is a wealth of subject matter to draw, photograph and paint.

Here, topographical works are used to reveal how artists' perceptions of the Welsh landscape have changed over the centuries, with historic depictions of famous beauty spots sitting alongside contemporary industrial and urban views.
