Ben Lomond from above Aberfoyle by Sir Alfred East

  • Sir Alfred East was born in Kettering in Northamptonshire, England in 1844. Born into a family of shoemakers, Alfred East studied art at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland. Sir Alfred East's landscapes are heavily influenced by the French Barbizon school of painters and to many he was considered to be the greatest living landscape painter of his time.
