Alfred Birdsey, Bermudan/British (1912 - 1996)
Alfred Birdsey was one of the more famous and talented water colorists in Bermuda, his impressionistic landscapes of Hamilton, St. Georges and the surrounding sailboats, homes, and bays of Bermuda are world-renowned. He also painted some sailboat artwork that was used to promote the America's Cup when it is sailed from Newport, RI, USA to Bermuda.
Alfred Birdsey stood alone for most of the second half of the 20th century as the only modernist painter working in Bermuda. Entirely self-taught, it is believed he started painting in 1927 at the age of 16.
