About this Item
Hughes, Nigel. (2005) Views in Colonial Natal, Craighall: privately published. Illustrated in colour on pages 48 and 49.
"Methven never tired of painting Mont-aux-Sources in all its moods and this is one of several. The mountain is shown during a summer storm with menacing low clouds rolling down into the valley below. In the foreground is the Tugela (Thukela) River in full spate, a churning mass of white water. Methven's sometimes cold Scottish palette is well suited to dramatic Drakensberg storms."
