James Thomas Linnell

1820 - 1905.
James Linnell was the fourth child, and second son, of, the Romantic landscape painter, John Linnell (1792-1882). He grew up in the circle of William Blake, and became brother-in-law to Samuel Palmer (Palmer marrying his eldest sister, Hannah, in 1837). His own achievement suggests that he was the finest of Linnell’s familial followers.
