Herbert Charles Sheppard (1859-1932) was born in Llangynwyd in Glamorganshire, Wales, and resided later in Bridgend.
The inner mount with gilded bevel is original, the outer mount is new.
There are 2 oil paintings by this artist at National Museum Cardiff.
There are very few convincing paintings of waterfalls, and this in my opinion is one of those few.
