Paintings of the Fairies Kettle Cliffs up in Cumbria in northeastern England. 19th century. James Shotton, artist. Living from 1824 to 1896, he also designed what is thought to have been the first Victorian Turkish bath in England in 1857. A close friend of William Holman Hunt. One of a different cliff but it fits right in.
