Pictured above: Caernarvon Castle circa 1798, painted with oil by Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775-1851.
Parts of Wales painted by great landscape artist JMW Turner are being filmed for an exhibition about his work in the United States later this year.
The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC is shooting a documentary in Turner locations including Tintern Abbey, in Monmouthshire, this week.
Turner painted the abbey in 1794, during a decade which saw him regularly visit areas throughout Wales.
His collection extends to 350 oil paintings and 20,000 works on paper.
Carroll Moore, who is producing, writing and directing the documentary, has already filmed inside Ewenny Priory in Bridgend, which Turner painted in 1797.
Since 1998, Carroll Moore has produced and directed films for the National Gallery of Art in Washington. After studying history at the University of Washington in Seattle, he began his career with the BBC in London.
