Alexis De Leeuw was a Belgian landscape and animal painter who was born in Bruges in 1848. He spent many years in England and is known to have lived in Southwark. Whilst in England he exhibited at the Royal Academy, British Institution, Suffolk Street and the Royal Hibernian Academy. De Leeuw’s style and subject matter took influence from the Dutch artist Frederik Marinus Kruseman (1816-1882). However, he made his name specialising in winter landscapes with figures usually containing horses and dogs and showed a great talent for snow scenes and winter sports. He occasionally painted pastoral landscapes; however it is for his winter scenes that he is perhaps best known.

Examples of his work can be found at the Atkinson Art Gallery, Bowes Museum, New Art Gallery Walsall, the Witt Library and the Whitaker Collection, Australia.

The work is housed in a new English made gilt frame, which is in excellent condition.
