Tour Scotland photograph of the Last Load painting by John Linnell who often painted in Scotland. John was born on 16 June 1792 in Bloomsbury, London, England. His father was a carver and gilder and Linnell was brought into contact with many artists from an early age, and was drawing and selling portraits in chalk and pencil at the age of 10. In 1805 he was admitted a student of the Royal Academy, where he obtained medals for drawing, modelling and sculpture. He commanded very large prices for his paintings, and about 1850 he purchased a property at Redhill, Surrey, where he lived till his death on 20 January 1882, painting with unabated powers until within the last few years of his life. He devoted himself to painting landscapes notably of the North Downs Scotland and Kentish Weald.
