Vickers, Alfred Henry (1834-1919)

Alfred Henry Vickers was a well-travelled painter of European landscapes, primarily around England and the continent. He was born into an artistic family and like his father and grandfather, he exhibited at the Royal Academy.

It’s likely that he was trained by his grandfather, Alfred Vickers Senior (1786-1868), as his father passed away when he was three years old.

Alfred’s son, Alfred Charles, also became a painter.
