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 view of an aspect of the village of Grafton is in the countryside to the east of Birmingham.
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.
