Artists Biography

Alfred Provis

British 1843 - 1886
Alfred Provis was a painter of domestic genre, who exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1846 - 1876, as well as exhibiting at Suffolk Street, British Institution and various other venues.

He specialised in small, detailed interiors of cottages and farmhouses, with women and children performing household chores. His pictures are usually small and predominantly brown in colour, his style and subject matter shows affinity to Webster and the Cranbrook Colony.

Provis's palette of luminous browns abandons the 'principal' for a less, narrow solution of light and a freer analysis, drawing the viewer's eye all around the whole of his canvas.
