Biography from Christie's London, King Street:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

John Brett spent much of September and October 1871 with his wife and baby son at Whitesand Bay, near St David's, where he painted a number of oil sketches in his newly-adopted 7 x 14 in. format.  These all feature one or other of the distant rocky outcrops known as the North Bishop and the South Bishop, which are visible looking west from the beach.   In his studio the following winter he developed three larger works from these sketches.  Two were sent in to the 1872 Royal Academy, while the other was sent to Liverpool.
