    Little is known of the life of Francis Stevens. Reportedly born in Exeter, he was a pupil of Paul Sandby Munn and his work shows the influence of Thomas Girtin. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1804. The present work dates from circa 1810 when he exhibited a number of Norwich views at the Society of Painters in Water-colours. In 1811 he exhibited a view of Supholme Abbey, Lincolnshire.
