Influential Artists: Samuel Palmer 1805–1881

Updated: Apr 30, 2021

Samuel Palmer is renowned for his etchings, but it's the paintings that appeal to me because of the strength of colour and composition.

Much like WM Turner, this is the kind of work I aspire to create, with a dramatic realism, albeit with a more contemporary subject matter. His ability to create light through painting is wonderful, and the contrast in his paintings are very strong - possibly why he chose to also work in black and white print, as there is such a variation in tones and values throughout his works.
