Llyn Ogwen is a long and narrow ribbon lake situated between the mountain ranges of Carneddau and Glyderau, in the Snowdonia national park in north Wales. Among stylistically comparable Welsh landscapes by James Thomas Linnell is a view near Pen-y-Coed, formerly in the collections of Sir Bruce Ingram and Michael Ingram, and a view from the road from Bettwys-y-Coed to Dolwyddel, at one time in the collection of George Goyder.
