Catalogue Note

This work dates to 1844, the year in which Muller visited Lynmouth on the north coast of Devon. In 1882 the watercolour was loaned to the Royal Jubille Exhibition in Manchester by Peter Allen. Allen was the brother-in-law of John Edward Taylor (1830-1905), the proprietor of the Manchester Guardian and an important collector of paintings and watercolours (see lot 405 for further information). We are grateful to Francis Greenarce for his help when cataloguing this lot.
