Dartmoor has inspired generations of artists with its breath-taking scenery. Masters of the Moor gives you the opportunity to see Dartmoor through the eyes of some of these artists.
Use this app to help you visit some of the locations depicted in their paintings. It uses your camera to overlay the artist’s landscape scene over the modern day view. We hope you will add your interpretation through sharing your photographs and comments through social media.
Masters of the Moor stems from two exhibitions at RAMM: Dartmoor: A Wild And Wondrous Region in 2017/2018 and Masters of the Moor in 2013. The text is taken from Peter F. Mason’s catalogue for the 2017 exhibition or from Samuel Rowe’s A Perambulation of Dartmoor, 1896, with illustrations by FJ Widgery.
Dartmoor: A Wild and Wondrous Region is one of the main public outcomes of the Heritage Lottery Fund Landscape Partnership-funded Moor than meets the eye.
