Brief Biography-John Linnell was from Bloomsbury in central London. He began drawing when he was a young child and by 1802 he was selling chalk portraits. Benjamin West was his initial tutor, followed by a year with John Varley and associate student William Mulready before being enrolled into the Royal Academy. He made a living from doing engravings and miniature paintings however his later work was mostly of landscapes which he was primarily known for. His paintings achieved high prices and he settled in Surrey for the remainder of his life and was a good friend and supporter of William Blake until he died in 1882.
