Ward's watercolours, which owe much to Thomas Girtin (1775-1802), are notable on account of his command of the medium and also because they are so much lighter and more free than his rather laboured efforts in oil. Although this sheet is inscribed and dated 1845, it may actually have been painted in about 1822, when he made other watercolours in the area. The ancient stones at Stonehenge appealed to many artists of the period including Turner (1775-1851) and John Constable (1776-1837).
