Harold A. E. Day, East Anglian Painters, vol. II, Eastbourne, 1968, p.138.
Norfolk & Norwich Art Union, 1839, no.84 as 'Scene at Knaresborough from nature...'.
Henry Ladbrooke was the son of landscape painter Robert Ladbrooke. He was also the nephew of John Crome, under whom he studied for a short period.
By around 1840 he toured Yorkshire and the North of England. The present work is likely to have been painted during this time. Dr Peter Kennedy-Scott suggests that it is the painting exhibited in the first exhibition of the Norfolk and Norwich Art Union in 1839 as 'Scene at Knaresborough from nature...'.
