The artist was one of two brothers, Gustave and Alfred, both of whom were prolific landscape artists. Gustave was born on 24 April, 1859 in London, and died there on 26 May, 1931, age 64 (GRO). All seven of his RA exhibits between 1878 and 1887 were seascapes, with one canvas in 1886 depicting a Newlyn title.
Of the brothers, Alfred is considered the greater talent and achievement (Brook-Hart); however there is no evidence of his presence or painting in West Cornwall.
