David Tovey writes (2012) 'Branwhite came from a Bristol family of artists and was an early visitor to St Ives. He studied under his father, Charles Branwhite ARWS and at South Kensington, and was to become a well-known landscape painter. While not as regular a Cornish visitor as some of the other Bristol artists, such as George WOLFE and Charles Parsons KNIGHT, he did exhibit occasional Cornish scenes at the Bristol Academy.'
