Brought up in an artistic environment, Johns father, James, was a carver and gilder. The young Linnell's artistic talents became apparent at an early age and his father was able to capitalise on them setting his son to work producing copies of George Morland (whose works were much in demand), which he was able to sell. John studied under Sir Benjamin West and renowned landscape painter John Varley, and rose to become one of the outstanding landscape painters of the 19th century. Linnell in his day commanded around 1000 guineas for his work, an extraordinary sum; his name and ability compared to and on a par with Turner, Constable, William Blake and Samuel Palmer.
“River Scene at Sunset” was exhibited at the Royal Academy
