From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Samuel Restell Lines or Samuel Rostill Lines (January 15, 1804 – November 9, 1833) was an English painter and illustrator.

Born in Birmingham, he was the third son of Samuel Lines, one of the founders of the academy for the training of artists that would eventually evolve into the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and Birmingham School of Art. The younger Lines studied drawing and painting under his father and showed great promise in illustrating landscapes and buildings – having work exhibited at the Royal Academy – but died in Birmingham at the age of only twenty nine.[1]

Examples of his work feature in the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery and Maidstone Museum & Art Gallery.[1]
