Hi Glenn,
I'm not at all a European art expert, but check out this Gastineau that was auctioned at Bonhams in June 2007.   11"x14" it was estimated at 600-800 pounds sterling, but did not sell.  Titled "Dyserth Castle"...I think it contains many elements of your picture though it hard to tell from the tiny pictures AllExperts Service sends through to me.

Anyway, Bonhams in NYC or London would be an excellent venue for you to seek more information.  

Best regards,

Fine Art
