Samuel Lines was one of the most influential landscape artists and teachers of the early English School. Lines studied drawing under Joseph Barber at his academy in Birmingham alongside his friend and contemporary David Cox. In 1809 Lines became one of the founder members of the Birmingham Academy of Arts at which he both exhibited and taught. Lines’ many pupils included Thomas Creswick, and Lines’ own five sons. Between 1817 and 1833 the artist also exhibited at the Royal Academy in London.
