An Autumn Morning

This picture shows the influence of French Impressionism and depicts an idyllic vision of life at the seaside at an exclusive resort in the late 19th century.

The location is likely to be Anacapri, a commune on the island of Capri, in Naples, Italy.

Edward Trevor was born in Shropshire, one of a family of painters, and was inspired by the landscapes of Cornwall, France and Italy. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1885. Trevor died in Anacapri at the age of 29.
