Display caption

Under River is a hamlet lying below River Hill, south of Sevenoaks in Kent and a few miles from Shoreham. Linnell visited Samuel Palmer at Shoreham on several occasions in the late 1820s and early 1830s and commissioned a number of works from him. Linnell's own drawing style at this time reflects the work Palmer was doing around 1828. A drawing by Palmer of almost the same view as this one by Linnell is in the Victoria and Albert Museum.
