Alfred Thompson Bricher

Hiro Fine Art is interested in purchasing artworks by Alfred Thompson Bricher.

Alfred Thompson Bricher was a Hudson River School painter and associated with White Mountain art, styles that both depict dramatic landscapes. He was born in New Hampshire, but began his career in Boston as a businessman. In his twenties, he devoted himself to art and opened a studio in Newburyport, MA and later in New York. He made a comfortable living, allowing him to travel often and paint along the Atlantic Coast, but was not highly regarded by critics of the time. He was, however, elected into the National Academy of Design as an Associate member in 1879. By the 1980s, his work was rediscovered and he became known as one of the best maritime painters of his time. With his luminist style, his works experiment with light and the ways in which it is reflected and absorbed on land and water.
