Two Evocative Paintings of Welsh Landscapes to be Auctioned at Bonhams

LONDON.- Two beautiful oil paintings of the Welsh countryside by Alfred de Breanski are to feature in Bonhams auction of 19th Century Paintings on 27th January 2011. Fishermen and cattle, Betts-y-Coed is expected to fetch £10,000-15,000 while The Llugwy from Pont-y-Cyfyng, Capel Curig is estimated to sell for £5,000-7,000.

Alfred de Breanski (1852-1928) was a British landscape artist admired for his spectacular and resplendent views of Wales and the highlands of Scotland. These rural scenes are noted for their beautiful depiction of light and often feature sheep or cattle.

The artist made his debut at the Royal Academy in 1872, and his works were exhibited here until 1918. He went on many trips to Wales to paint the scenery and it was on one of these visits that he met the Welsh artist Annie Roberts, whom he later married.

His works are well regarded and can be found in several museums including the Laing Art Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne and the Southampton Art Gallery.

Charles O’Brien, Head of 19th Century Pictures at Bonhams, comments, “Alfred de Breanski is considered the master of the romantic highland landscape. Although highly prolific, there is always a quality to his work that has resonated with collectors over the years. We are delighted to be offering these two works in our sale in January and expect considerable interest from private collectors and dealers alike.”
