ALFRED DE BREANSKI (British 1852-1928) A PAINTING, "The Mountains of the Western Highlands," oil on canvas, signed L/L. 19" x 32" NOTE: Born in London into a family of artists and living much of his life in Greenwich, Alfred De Breanski, Sr., was a well known landscape painter of Welsh and Scottish scenes, especially lochs in the highlands at sunset, bathed in light. Often his paintings had water and sheep or cattle grazing and perhaps a solitary figure in the distance. Later in his career, he painted views of the Thames as well as one of Windsor Castle. In 1880, he began spending much time in London where he was a Freeman of the City of London. He was married to Annie Roberts, a noted Welsh artist whom he met on painting trips to Wales. The couple had seven children including two sons, Gustave and Alfred who also became known for their landscape paintings. De Breanski began exhibiting at the Royal Academy in London in 1869, and he also exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists Suffolk Street and the New Watercolor Society. His style was realistic and detailed, and on the back of his work he usually noted the exact location and the date of execution. Work in Museums by Alfred De Breanski, Sr., is in The Sydney Museum in Australia, Southampton Art Gallery and Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne. Sources include: additional information courtesy of Wayne Kielsmeier. Provenance: Estate of the late Charles A. and Betti F. Saunders, Houston, Texas.Read more
