A recent portrait of the Countess of Dundonald by George Cottier of Prestatyn to commemorate the publication of the Biography of the Countess of Dundonald. For commissions please telephone on 01745 887305

A watercolour of the Countess of Dundonald from 2001. It was based upon an early photograph of her ladyship dating from the 1900's.

A ghostly watercolour of the fateful Countess, who by the hand of providence led a life of unhappiness and depression. I feel that this picture captures the mood and spirit of the lady who loved and cherished Gwrych.

Another haunting watercolour of Lady Dundonald, based upon a portait of August 1910, when she was 51 years old. Here, she would have been laying the foundation stone of Church House, Llanddulas.
