Death date after 1920s

Born in Bradford, Yorkshire, the artist may have been an American (Mallett’s Index, Whybrow) who studied art under Julius OLSSON in St Ives; St Ives Times (28 Mar 1913) says: "[AB]…who has been painting at St Ives about eighteen months after spending some years in the United States." In 1913 he exhibited An October Morn After Rain. In 1914 he exhibited and sold Old Pier St Ives at NAG.

Two views of St Ives by Beaumont were used in The Studio (1915). He returned to USA after WWI and is recorded as living at Stapleton, New York in the 1920s (J Wood).
