Biography from Hess Fine Art & Auctions:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born on the 31st of March 1910, this inquisitive British artist has been thought to be self taught but, in fact, had received the guidance from Bertam Priestman. R.A. The uncommonly beneficial training he received from working and touring with the circus and Ballet in London in 1930 overshadowed his brief encounter with Bertam. From an observer's standpoint he was able to mimic and develop his own technique where he could capture the movement and light of the figures before him. He published several books based on his time there, but as more of a benefit, gained the reputation as a postimpressionist.

During this time, he got his first painting accepted into the Royal Academy for their Summer Exhibit. After years of traveling and personal development, he gained the insight and technique deserving of any distinguished artist. Through his travels he painted scenes from Hong Kong, France, Sardinia, Italy, Morocco, and Portugal to list a few.

His artwork, since his first exhibit, was exhibited in such locations as London, Glasgow, New York, Toronto, Montreal, Los Angeles, Oslo and Brussels. His works are featured in the Fine Arts Museum of San Fransisco.

Biography from Odon Wagner Gallery:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Edward Brian Seago was a painter of landscapes, marines and flowers in an Impressionist style. He successfully exhibited his paintings in London, Glasgow, New York, Toronto, Montreal, Los Angeles, Oslo and Brussels. He was a member of the Royal Society of British Artists from 1946, and of the Royal Watercolors Society from 1959. His first solo exhibition was in London in 1944.

In 1957, still in London at Saint James Palace, Seago presented canvases realized during the world tour of the Duke of Edinburgh. Essential to a landscape artist, he remained faithful to an impressionistic atmosphere, attempting to capture the rapid touches from the shimmering of light, made to sometimes bathe together in a blur like that of Turner. He liked to translate English landscapes, in particular those of Norfolk, but also painted much from abroad.

In 1968 Seago acquired 'Ca Conca', a villa apartment in the elegant yachting resort of Porto Cervo on the Costa Smeralda, Sardinia. There, his terrace offered fine views of the harbor which would become subject matter for future paintings.
