This is a of the noted Bermudian artist ALFRED BIRDSEY (1912-1996), the sheet 16 1/2" by 20 1/2" (20 1/2" by 24 1/2" framed). Birdsey was a familiar figure in Bermuda for decades, a prolific artist, the works of whom traveled home with tourists to the island. This would account for the wide distribution of his distinctive work. Today his daughter continues the family tradition, with similar looking paintings being sold to visitors. Birdsey worked in gouache or, occasionally, oil or acrylic on paper. Some works are more detailed than others, some with little color, but all capture the feeling of the unique island landscape of Bermuda. This example is in very good condition. The artist's signature appears at bottom right corner. Note the tall palm tree at far left in black ink.
