Alfred de Breanski - Salters Boat Yard. Folly Bridge, Oxfordshire. This painting shows how it looked in the early 20th century. The Henley was constructed in 1897 and worked until 1978 and was owned by the Salter Brothers. The hull was originally painted green and changed to red at a later date. The red roofed building exists today. The steamboat to the left side of the painting is thought to be the Alaska which was acquired by Salters when they re-introduced a passenger service between Oxford and Kingston in 1888. It was a five day round trip, two days downstream and three upstream. Alfred de Breanski, Snr 1852-1928 British. Born in Greenwich (London) in 1852, the eldest son of Leopold de Breanski, Alfred de Breanski became famous for his paintings of British landscapes starting at a very young age. Alfred De Breanski Snr, and his son Alfred De Breanski Jr, (1877-1957) were London artists who painted Welsh & Scottish mountain scenes. Their landscapes, filled with light and colour, often feature the sunlight radiating from within - creating a warm and peaceful feeling. This family continued the traditions of Victorian landscape art well into the 20th century. Alfred Snr’s prolific output included well known Thames Towns and view points, painting stunning views along the River Thames. He lived and travelled on a house boat often moored at Cookham constantly looking for new places to paint. Alfred is renowned for spectacular paintings of the Scottish Highland’s and Lochs at sunset. He exhibited at the Royal Academy (48) between 1872 and 1890 and also at the Society of British Artists, Suffolk Street.
