Alfred Fontville De Bréanski Jr was a British artist known for painting landscapes of the United Kingdom in rich detail and vivid color. Born in 1877 in London, England, De Breanski began to study art at an early age, taught by his parents and an uncle—all were accomplished painters, most especially Alfred de Bréanski Sr.The younger de Breanski attended the St. Martins School of Art before embarking on his own career painting naturalistic vistas of the countryside in Scotland and Wales. Similar to Antoine-Louis Barye and Alfred Barye, the de Breanksi father and son team worked within the same media with similar subject matter, and thus needed to distinguish their artworks from one another by a unique signature. The artist later travelled to France in the 1890s and was exposed to the Belle Époque style, and made the acquaintance of James Abbott McNeil Whistler. His artworks began to show the influence of Impressionism after his return to Britain, with prominent brushstrokes and great attention paid to light. De Bréanksi died in 1957 in Tonbridge, England.
The Story: Alfred Fontville de Breanski was born into a family of painters. Not only was his father the highly regarded Victorian landscape painter, Alfred de Bréanski, Sr., but his mother was theWelsh painter, Annie Roberts. In addition, his uncle Gustave de Bréanski was a noted seascape painter, and his aunt Julie had also trained as an artist. Working as a painter, then, was something of a family business.
