Palmer Samuel

Palmer, Samuel, born in London in 1805, began as a child to show a talent for painting, and exhibited in the Royal Academy at the age of fourteen. Ill-health having compelled him to leave London, he settled in Kent, where he devoted himself to water-colour painting with great success. The illustrations which he produced for LAllegro and II Penseroso are typical examples of his best style. He died at Eeigate in 1881.

“At the least whosoever has the spirit of Christ, shall find that spirit in him striving against that which is contrary, and by little and little gaining ground. Where there is no conflict, there is no spirit of Christ at all.”
–Richard Sibbes, Description of Christ
