Footnotes

  • This picture is a study for 'Southampton Water seen form the River near Netley Abbey' originally owned by the distinguished collector Chambers Hall. Hall's reaction upon seeing the picture was extremely enthusiastic and he immediately commissioned a companion to it.

    'You have indeed realised ideas which I had long cherished of a most magnificent effect of nature, the interest in which is heightened to me from the circumstance of locality...My real ambition is now the Itchen Ferry (morning) as a companion to the sunset.'
    Chambers Hall, 'John Linell, A Centennial Exhibition', exhib cat., Fitzwilliam Museum 1982, p.23.

    Provenance:
    Agnew's, Old Bond Street, London.
