This monumental watercolor was painted by Finnish artist Alexander Creswell (b. 1957). Creswell was born in Helsinki, Finland in the British Embassy, where his father was serving as British ambassador. He grew up shuttling between various capitals and in boarding school in England. It was at Winchester College where his interest in Art flourished under the guidance of the late Grahame Drew. He attended a Foundation Course at West Surrey College of Art and Design, Farnham, but is otherwise largely self-taught having survived only a term and a half at the Byam Shaw, London. He owes his skills to analyzing the work of past masters. Creswell has traveled as official artist with the Prince of Wales and taught at the Prince of Wales' Institute of Architecture, the Prince's Foundation and the ICA (Institute of Classical Architecture and Classical America) in New York. In 2007, his New York exhibition was featured in the Wall Street Journal. He is well known for his grand scale watercolors. He also has marine paintings alongside his more familiar architectural work. This painting was discussed in the New York Times 3/4/2007 in an article titled, Queensboro Bridge, Mr. Creswell's Muse by Paula Deitz as well as in the Fine Art Connoisseur May/June 2011 in an article by Peter Trippi.
