Alfred Vickers Snr
(1786 - 1868)
Alfred Vickers was a painter of marine subjects and landscapes. He exhibited extensively throughout his life but notably at the Royal Academy (125 works), at Suffolk Street (81 works) and at the British Institution.
Vicker's light, sparkling and rapid style has been compared to that of Boudin. Vickers painted many coastal views, particularly in the area of the Isle of White and the Solent. Vickers also painted on the continent.
Works by Vickers are in Glasgow, Nottingham and Sheffield Art Galleries.
