Meddai'r Parchedig J Evans yn frwd wrth ymweld yn y 1790au â'r bont hon a gysylltai Sir Gaernarfon a Meirionydd - 'Yr olygfa oedd yr harddaf y gallai neb ei dychmygu; mae'r llygad yn cael ei swyno a'r meddwl ei foddi mewn emosiynau o ryfeddod tawel...Uwchlaw mae'r clogwyni serth yn esgyn yn hollol afreolaidd fil o droedfeddi...popeth yn cyfrannu i greu golygfa aruchel sy'n tarddu o gyfuniad o ddwyster ac urddas.' Mae Nicholson, peintwr o Swydd Efrog, yn fwy adnabyddus fel arlunydd dyfrlliw. Cafodd y gwaith hwn ei engrafu ym 1809.

I recently purchased a watercolour dated 1799 it had the initials E N but could be F N or G N. Having taken it out of the frame it is paper on card. On the reverse it has Near Barmouth N Wales and signed E or F Nicholson. Having looked at the picture above it is very similar in style and has two people in the fore ground overlooking the bay. Can anyone suggest someone to look at it to determine if it is a FN

I have recently curated an exhibition "Francis Nicholosn (1753-1844) Painter, Printmaker and Drawing Master". The catalogue, published by Blackthorn Press (2012) is available through Amazon giving much informaton about his life and times. His youngest daughter and son visited Ireland on a sketching tour in 1821 but there is no evidence that their father ever travelled abroad.
FN values range from a few hundred pounds for small and faded examples to
