Hercules Enslin du Plessis was a painter of landscapes, figure subjects, interiors and coastal scenes. He was born in South Africa in 1894 but moved permanently to England in the 1920s. He was elected a Member of the London Group in 1929. He held several solo shows in London and South Africa and his work is represented in several public collections in both countries. In 1935 his work was included in the British Art Show at the World Exhibition in Brussels and in 1972 he was awarded the Medal of Honour for Painting, South African Akademie vir Wetenskap en Runs.

This painting is a view of Ferryside, which is on the coast of South Wales west of Swansea and opposite Llansteffan on the estuary of the River Towy. Du Plessis painted a number of views of the area during the 1930s, several of which he exhibited with the London Group, such as "Laugharne", "Kidwelly" and "Llanstephan Castle". It is likely that this painting dates from the same period.

The painting is an oil on panel. On the reverse a label provides the title of the painting and there are also remnants of Thomas Agnew labels. The painting is housed in a purpose-built, gilded and decorated frame with inner slip. Overall, including framing, it measures 19(h) by 22(w) inches.
