• This oil painting is by James Thomas Linnell (1820 – 1905) who studied at the Royal Academy.
• He was the son of John Linnell one of Britain’s most successful early 19th Century Landscape painters along with Samuel Palmer who was married to James’ sister.
• He proved to be as successful as his father exhibiting at the RA and many other Galleries almost continuously between 1850 and 1890.
• This particular painting is an exceptional example of one of his most accomplished works – and was formerly retailed by Haynes fine Art one of UK’s most prestigious Art Galleries. He’s was probably influenced by the Pre-Raphaelite technique of setting the painting on a light ground so that it has a superb luminosity even in natural light and similarly there is a lovely attention to detail in this work.
• His works are displayed in 12 UK museums, as well as stately homes and appear in major US collections.
• The painting is in superb restored Gallery condition and is signed-dated in the right hand corner.
• Delivery £100 uk exc. Scotland.
• Note dimensions refer to sizes inc. of frame.

Restoration and Presented Condition
I do not subscribe to the shabby chic or make it like new approach using modern materials which can make future restoration extremely difficult and impede long-term investment value.
Any restoration work is done to the highest (museum) standards using traditional materials so as to not compromise the patina of age.
Accordingly, please note some antique items for sale will have wear and marks associated with use over many generations that adds to the aesthetic beauty of the piece from the collector’s perspective.
Fine Art - Condition
All Paintings offered have been chosen for their excellent original condition, with where necessary museum standard cleaning, restoration and revarnishing. Presented in Gallery condition they are ready to hang for many generations, before cleaning / revarnishing may be necessary.
