Alfred Fontville De Breanski Jnr (1877-1957)
was the son of the prolific British landscape painter, Alfred De Breanski Senior (1852-1928). In fact, a number of the De Breanski family turned their talented hands to painting. Alfred’s Uncle, Gustave De Breanski was in his own right a very accomplished artist painting mainly coastal and seascape scenes. Alfred painted landscapes and highland scenes in a style similar to his father’s, but rather coarser and broader in the handling. His artistic composition concentrates on mountainous effects with a delicate balance of sunlight on the highland scenery at different times of the day. Between 1905 and 1920, de Breanski painted a series of English garden scenes in a colourful, impressionistic style with similar brush strokes to his landscape scenes. He exhibited several works during his lifetime at the Royal Academy and at the Royal Society of British Artists.
