An extensive landscape, possibly The Weald of Kent pen and ink and watercolour over pencil 27 x 37cm (10 5/8 x 14 9/16in).
The present lot is similar to the view depicted in Samuel Palmer's From Wilmot's Hill, Kent c. 1851 (cat. no 503 in Lister's Catalogue Raisonne of the Works of Samuel Palmer). Linnell made a number of sketches in this area of Kent, namely The Weald of Kent (1833) and Underriver (c. 1833) (cats 63 and 64 of John Linnell A Centennial Exhibition Fitzwiliam Museum 1982). Stylistically, the present lot is more likely to be earlier and is comparable to cats. 26. and 35. (John Linnell A Centennial Exhibition).
