Born in Greenwich, London, the eldest son of Leopold Breanski, a Polish émigré. His younger brother and sister, Gustave and Juliet were also painters. After his academic and artistic training, he began exhibiting his paintings in 1869 and made his debut at the Royal Academy in 1872 and continued to exhibit there until 1918.

  • Alfred de Breanski Snr. was a British landscape painter, best known for his idyllic depictions of rural Wales and Scotland, particularly highland lochs at sunset, which exude a golden rosy light.

    Breanski was deeply inspired by both John Constable and William Turner but sought his own style of expression.

    He was fascinated by the texture of rock, earth and foliage and would focus on the minute details of a particular plant or craggy rockface.
