Edward Brian Seago Biography

View full artist profile

Edward Seago was a member of the Royal Society of British Artists from 1946, and the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolours from 1959. He painted numerous English landscapes, notably in Norfolk, where he settled, but also produced a large body of work abroad. His work also includes a number of flower paintings. Much of his work was Post-Impressionist in atmosphere. His rapid brushwork captures reflections of light, occasionally enveloping his subjects in a diffuse, Turner-esque haze. He exhibited in London, Glasgow, New York, Toronto, Montreal, Los Angeles, Oslo, and Brussels. He held his first solo exhibition in London in 1944; two years later, he exhibited paintings depicting the war in Italy when he was Official Artist to the Italian Campaign. A later exhibition, at St James’s Palace in 1957, featured a series of paintings executed during a world tour accompanying the Duke of Edinburgh aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia.
