Catalogue Note

Richmond made this watercolour during a period when he was most influenced by William Blake and Samuel Palmer. In 1826 Palmer had left London and settled in the village of Shoreham in Kent. This village soon became the headquarters of a group of like minded artists and thinkers that included George Richmond. Calling themselves the 'Ancients', the friends lived a simple life, where they 'painted and engraved and discussed religion and literature.1
