Image of an outcrop in an oil painting dated from 1770-1800, location is unknown.
The Geological Society of London recently posted an image of a mystery location that the painting's owner would like to identify.

Their blog notes, "The painting dates from c. 1775-1800, and may represent a location in Wales or the Alps."
