About

Signed (at lower left): Alexander Creswell Contemporary Realist City-image/Citylife Alexander Creswell is considered one of Britain’s most successful living representational artists. Inspired by the great tradition of Master watercolorists, Creswell respectfully observes the time-honored values of integrity, artistry, and painterly quality in his work. With these in mind, Creswell moves the language of watercolor forward into the twenty-first century with innovations in both technique and scale. Celebrated internationally for his watercolors of Windsor Castle, a series commissioned by The Royal Collection, Creswell has been long associated with the Royal Family and HRH The Prince of Wales. The artist has accompanied HRH The Prince of Wales on several occasions as his official artist. Indeed, much of Creswell’s previous work has been in the milieu of “artist-traveler,” a role explored by watercolorists for over 250 years, which includes the great names of William Blake, J.M.W. Turner, David Roberts, Edward Lear, and John Singer Sargent, all of whom have influenced Creswell in some capacity. Creswell’s work has been internationally lauded and celebrated. His paintings have been acquired by numerous institutions and public collections including: The Parliamentary Art Collection, London; Westminster Abbey, London; The Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.; The Frick Collection, New York; The Forbes Collection, New York, and others. The Royal Collection, HM Queen Elizabeth, as well as HRH The Prince of Wales, own several works by Creswell.
