Watercolour Landscape (possibly Yorkshire) with daffodils in the foreground by Alfred Parsons.
Alfred William Parsons, RA PRWS RSW RI HRMS ROI NEAC (1847-1920)
Alfred Parsons became an expert in various branches of the art of the garden. He used watercolour to produce fresh portraits of gardens and accurate illustrations of botanical specimens. Having collaborated on books with the famous gardener, William Robinson, he went on to become a designer of gardens in Britain and the United States. His transatlantic connections were strengthened through his membership of the Anglo-American ‘Broadway Group’ of artists and writers that included Henry James and John Singer Sargent. He further broadened his horizons and deepened his knowledge through trips to Japan in the period 1892-94.
Alfred Parsons was born in Beckington, Somerset, on 2 December 1847, the son of a surgeon.

He was employed as a clerk in the Savings Bank Department of the Post Office (1865-67), and then studied at the National Art Training School in South Kensington (which later became the Royal College of Art). Specialising in pastoral landscapes, garden scenes and flowers, he exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1871 and at other leading London galleries, including the Fine Art Society, which mounted five solo shows of his work between 1885 and 1894.
