Alfred de Breanski Sr. Art

British, 1852-1928

Widely regarded as one of England’s most accomplished landscape artists, British painter Alfred de Breanski Sr. is known by collectors for his realistic depictions of the rugged, isolated beauty of the Scottish Highlands and Welsh mountains.

Born in 1852 in Greenwich, England, de Breanksi grew up in an artistic family. His elder brother was the noted seascape painter Gustave de Breanski and his younger sister Julie trained as an artist.

Many of de Breanksi’s paintings feature animals such as sheep and cattle, which he painted grazing along the grassy banks of the River Thames or in the undulating fields of Wales and Scotland. He was influenced by the likes of renowned British painter John Constable, making similar use of texture, light and color in his landscape paintings

De Breanski debuted his works at the Royal Academy in London in 1872, where he continued to exhibit until 1918. He also showcased at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters and the Royal Cambrian Academy in Wales.

In 1873, de Breanski married Welsh painter Annie Roberts, and together they had seven children. Two of their children — Alfred de Breanski Jr. and Arthur de Breanski — would follow their parents’ footsteps and become artists. In 1880, de Breanksi became a Freeman of the City of London, and in 1928, he died in London.

Today, de Breanski’s paintings can be seen in museums and galleries throughout Britain, including at the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle upon Tyne, the Southampton City Art Gallery and the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery in Brighton and Hove.

Often bathed in a flood of golden light, these landscapes usually feature water and cattle or sheep on grassy banks; sometimes a solitary figure is seen the distance. Breanski belonged to the real stamp of those landscape painters who nimbly seized moments of the day. He had a great passion for the Highlands and perhaps more than any other, caught the atmospheric influences of the undulating landscape. Born in Greenwich...
