Sir Alfred East

A rare study of Fowey harbour c1890. Signed lower right and titled 'Fowey' lower left, watercolour, 51 x 33cm (20 1/16 x 13in)
Sir Alfred East RI, RA (1844-1913). The landscape painter Alfred East was born in Kettering. Although his parents were against him pursuing an artistic career, while living in Glasgow he fell into the company of artists, and enrolled in the Government School of Art there. He then studied in Paris under Fleury and Bouguereau, painting his first Academy picture while at Barbizon. He then returned to Glasgow, but after some years ultimately moved to London, where he settled in 1884. He also made a six month visit to Japan. He exhibited landscapes at the Royal Academy from 1883 throughout the rest of his life, painting in oil and watercolour and being an accomplished etcher. His particular strength was in painting the effect of different lights on the landscape. He was commissioned by the Fine Art Society to paint landscapes in Japan, and the exhibition of the resulting works in 1890 led to much acclaim. He became ARA in 1899, was President of the Society of British Artists from 1906, and was knighted in 1910. He was finally elected RA only in 1913, shortly before he died.
East resided in St Ives at 5 The Terrace. He was an active member of the St Ives art colony and visited the town frequently between c1890 and 1913.
In 1888 East exhibited 38 pictures of the Duchy of Cornwall at the Fine Art Society. Titles exhibited Included Evening at Fowey and Autumn- a bit from my window at Fowey".
