Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery
University of Nottingham Associate Professor in Art History Nicholas Alfrey explores A View of Nottingham from the East by Jan Siberechts. The painting offers a highly detailed account of the town and its relationship to the Trent Valley. We will also consider the painting as one of two intersecting prospects, since there is another view by Siberechts, now in a private collection, showing the same landscape in reverse shot, seen from the vantage point of Clifton Grove.
