Albert Marlow lived at number 7 Broad Street Corner, Birmingham.
His most notable exhibition venue was The Royal Society of Artists, Birmingham where he showed a total of ten paintings between 1884 and 1888. This painting was loaned for exhibition from The Gunn Collection, being handed over to Wolverhampton Art Galleries and Museums for the months of July and August 1996.
This view was probably taken from studies in the countryside around the Birmingham area.
Marlow’s compositional and drawing skills are clearly evident in all of the five works shown here. He also displays a very strong sense of his love of the rural subjects he chose so often in his work.
