Arthur Anderson Fraser was one of seven brothers, of whom six became artists. They worked in a broadly similar style, painting a small secluded corner of rural East Anglia, between Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire, in England. Arthur was largely self-taught, his only instruction in drawing appears to have been at his local grammar school in Bedford. The delicate brushwork of which he was capable can be seen in this painting of frosty branches in Bromham Park, which evokes a chilly landscape with a presage of spring in the air.
