Notes:

Previously entitled 'On Chaldon Down, Dorset', an identification made by a former owner of the painting, J. Harold Wright, the scene depicted is almost certainly in Devon. Andrew Wilton has suggested that it depicts the scenery of North Devon, and it may be that it is the painting which Palmer exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1835 (no. 90), with the title,'Scene from Lee, North Devon'. Palmer certainly painted this view as a result of his trip to the West Country in 1834
