Artist's description:

This painting was based on a 19thc photograph by Robert French (1841 – 1917) showing the harbour just after its use for exporting basalt paving setts to Scotland and once more returns to being a fishing port.

The view looks north east with Rathlin island in the far distance and sheep island on the extreme right. Further evidence of its industrial history is shown by the large lime kiln to the right of the harbour.

To the left of the harbour is ‘Rourkes kitchen’ reputed to be named after a fisherman from Donegal who took shelter at the harbour and decided to remain.

Ballintoy harbour has become famous recently in the Game of Thrones series as being the filming location for Lordsport, the port serving Pyke, house Greyjoy’s seat of the Iron Islands. It was here that Theon Greyjoy returned and met his sister Yara, whom he didn’t initially recognise. The little harbour wall in the centre of the painting, next to the boathouse, was also used when Arya Stark left Westeros for training in Braavos.
