Plimer, a pupil of Richard Cosway, left Cosway's studio in 1785 to set up on his own. He had a practice in Great Maddox Street, Hanover Square for a year then moved to Cambridge and married in 1801 a Joanna Knight. Plimer and his family toured through Devon and Cornwall and by 1815 he was in Exeter. He finally settled in Brighton in 1835 where he died in 1837.
This work falls into Plimer's earliest examples, which are sometimes more attractive and more natural than those he executed later. The early pieces were usually signed A.P. as is the case here.
