Description

It has been suggested that this large watercolour, with its strong colours and rich layers of texture, dates to either the late 1850s or the early 1860s. The landscape, bathed as it is in a golden evening light, is idyllic and rather than representing a ‘real’ place, it combines topography that Palmer experienced on his tours of Italy (1837-40), Cornwall (1848 and 1857) and Devon (1848, 1849 and 1858). We would like to thank Colin Harrison for his help when cataloguing this work.
