A large and rare seascape in oil by Alfred Fontville de Breanski, JR (British 1877-1957), who mainly painted the Sottish highlands and garden scenes. He was taught by his father Alfred de Breanski, SR. And he developed a style that was similar although less formal and more fluid. This painting predates the 1905-1920 period of his gardens and was painted c. 1890-1900. Of particular note in this painting is the light reflection on the water and it illustrates his extraordinary ability to illuminate. It seems to almost glow in the dark. He exhibited frequently at the Royal Society of British Artists and was a member of the Royal Academy. He is represented in museums and galleries world wide, and listed in all major art references. Regarding condition the painting has been professionally restored. It has had considerable in painting in the sky where small flecks of paint had fallen off. Also it has craqueture in several areas which has been stabilized. But the canvas has not been lined and the colors are beautiful. The painting is signed in the lower left and on the reverse and titled "Dispersing Cloud" . The giltwood frame, although of the same age as the painting, is not original and has minor flaws. The painting measures 24" x 36"(unframed) and 31" x 42" (framed).
