After initial indifference I am starting to feel quite affectionate towards Alfred de B. (snr). Maybe it is because you have featured so many of his paintings and each time I see one I am transported for a moment to a wild place.

Thank you. He often seems to come up for auction so I resume he was a prolific painter. I like his landscapes, they have a soft appearance that I like. Wild but not too wild!
