A Memoir of Samuel Palmer

Samuel Palmer, A. H. Palmer, and F. G. Stephens

Samuel Palmer (1805–1881) was one of the leading British landscape painters of the nineteenth century. Inspired by his mentor, the artist and poet William Blake, Palmer brought a new spiritual intensity to his romantic depictions of nature. A Memoir of Samuel Palmer contains the first biography of the artist, written by his son A. H. Palmer; a critical appreciation of Palmer by the Pre-Raphaelite artist and critic F. G. Stephens, which provides a deeply personal look at the painter as well as insight into the reception of his art during the Victorian era; and an autobiographical letter by Palmer himself.
