As a young man Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956) travelled extensively through southern Europe and to the North African coast, recording the landscapes he encountered. He also journeyed to South Africa, painting the old towns and farms around Cape Town. This small display combines oils and watercolours from the Gallery's collection with important loans from private collectors, depicting scenes in North and South Africa, Italy and Spain. They were painted in the 1890s when Brangwyn was in his twenties and making a name for himself in the salons of Europe.
