This object is part of Schaaf no. 432

Copy of an etching or engraving, rustic view of a lakeside Gothic ruin

The image depicts an arched building in ruin with small boats moored nearby.

Possibly Neath Abbey in Wales, which offers similar views of a medieval ruin reflected in water from the nearby Tennant Canal.

It is a variant of Schaaf numbers 441, 572 and 1607.
