  • About the artist
    Edward Seago is widely regarded as one of Britain's finest 20th century Impressionist painters. He was born in Norwich in 1910, the son of a local coal merchant. Although he was largely self-taught, he received some training at the Royal Drawing Society where he won an award at the age of 14. In his youth, he spent much time touring with circuses in Britain, Ireland and in Europe. During the Second World War, he served in the Royal Engineers in Italy with Field-Marshal Lord Alexander, and often painted while in service. In 1957, an exhibition of his work was held at St James's Palace consisting of pictures painted during the Duke of Edinburgh's world tour. His work is represented in the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; The Royal Collection, London, and Norwich Castle Museum.
