    David Cox (there’s an elder and younger) would have painted the original painting and then Debaines would have been the engraver that made the plate that produced your print. The label McLean on the back is as it says, the seller, publisher, dealer.

    Clwyd is a county in Wales, it is named after the River Clwyd

    The David Cox’s seemed to paint lots of sheep herders, so likely Welsh sheep.

    Careful you don't eat some sheep's currants when fishing on the Clwyd.
