This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known primarily from his exhibition records, Alfred Fredericks is thought to have been born in England, and is confirmed as having kept a studio in New York City and in Brooklyn the last years of his life. 

He began his career as a painter of theater scenery, and then as a fine-art painter focused with oil and especially watercolor on narrative subjects such as scenes from Shakespeare's plays and sonnets.  Other subjects came from fairy tails and sensational fiction such as The Angel of the Sepulcher or The Flesh Pots of Egypt. He was also a prolific magazine illustrator.

In 1850, he was one of fifteen founding members of the New York Water Color Society, which in 1853, held at New York's Crystal Palace, the first significant exhibition of watercolors in America.  In 1867, the New York Water Color Society was replaced by the American Society of Painters in Water Colors, an organization he also founded and whose exhibitions he entered from 1867 through 1906.

From 1853 to 1888, Fredericks exhibited with the National Academy of Design. He also exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

Fredericks was a member of the National Academy of Design, beginning 1863, but in 1888, he was dropped because of failing to enter exhibitions two years in a row. "It seems likely that he was so devoted to his work in watercolor and illustration that the expectations of the Academy for significant works in oil no longer interested him." (209)

David Dearinger, Editor, Paintings and Sculpture in the Collection of the National Academy of Design, 1826-1925
