Brabazon, the son of landed gentry, was a self-taught amateur who dedicated himself to watercolor. He lived on his family’s estates in Sussex and made annual trips to the Continent, particularly the Swiss Alps and the Mediterranean. Brabazon was a friend of John Ruskin (also in this gallery), and the two artists traveled and painted together in northern France in 1880. During the last decades of the 19th century, Brabazon’s strikingly modern watercolors, characterized by mere suggestions of mountains, sky, and water, became known and admired among a younger circle of artists.
