This is a large fine early 1900s Scottish landscape of the sun immerging through a Highland mist around the slopes of Ben Venue in the Trossachs, by the celebrated British artist, Alfred Fontville de Bréanski (1877-1945). The painting is without question the finest work by this artist we have ever come across. The painting is signed by the artist, and hangs in a superb, ornate 1900s gilt Baroque frame.
Alfred Fontville de Bréanski frequently painted similar subjects and locations to his famous father, Alfred de Bréanski Sr., including the majestic rivers, lochs and highlands of Scotland. In addition to his father, de Bréanski Jnr. studied under James Whistler and Camille Pisarro, and developed into one of Britain’s most successful landscape painters of the period.
De Breanski Jnr. exhibited numerous works at the Royal Academy and with the renowned Royal Society of British Artists at the Suffolk Street Gallery.
