Alfred Sisley paintings of the estuary shore at Penarth

Some of these are in the Museum of Wales’s art collection , e.g. here. The websiste says:

“Within the Museum’s art collections is a view of the south Wales coast painted by Alfred Sisley – La falaise a Penarth, le soir, marée basse (‘The cliff at Penarth, the evening, low tide’). Sisley’s coastal views of 1897 are the only pictures of Wales ever painted by a leading Impressionist.”

La falaise a Penarth, le soir, marée basse (‘The cliff at Penarth, the evening, low tide’).

It must be Steep Holm Island on the horizon.
