Fort Dunree (Irish: An Dún Riabhach, meaning “Grey Fort” or Dún Fhraoigh meaning “Fort of Heather”) is a coastal defence fortification located on the west side of the Inishowen peninsula, Ireland. Originally built as a Royal Navy position during the Napoleonic Wars, the fort is located on a rocky promontory accessed over a natural fissure.
As the Fort has a look as if it were carved from the rocky coast line, it appears in this painting as if were formed out of the abstract fauna that makes up some of the foreground.
