Antique Oil Painting On Canvas' John Linnell' 1792-1882. Signed
John Linnell June 16 1792-January 20 1882. Linnell was a naturalist, romantic and a rival to John Constable. Painted Northern European art of the Renaissance Period. John Linnell Senior was a landscape and portrait painter. As a young man he became a pupil of John Varley; his fellow students William Mulready and William Henry Hunt became Linnell's lifelong friends. His further art training took place at the Royal Academy Schools. His early career was principally devoted to portrait painting; subsequently landscapes came to predominate in his output. John Linnell was a close friend of William Blake and became father-in-law to Samuel Palmer. In the course of his long career Linnell enjoyed friendly relations with many other artists, including the much younger generation of the Pre-Raphaelites. Linnell's landscapes are taken in the English countryside and often include figures and animals.
They have a balance of composition and proportion, which allows one to associate Linnell with the European tradition of landscape classicism. Christopher Newall Linnell lived in London until 1852 when he moved to Redhill in Surrey, where he remained for the last thirty years of his life.
