Edward Seago
(1910 - 1974)

Edward Seago was a painter of landscapes, marines subjects, and flowers in an Impressionist style. He successfully exhibited his paintings in London, Glasgow, New York, Toronto, Montreal, Los Angeles, Oslo and Brussels. In 1968 Seago acquired 'Ca Conca', a villa apartment in the elegant yachting resort of Porto Cervo on the Costa Smeralda, Sardinia.

Seago was a member of the Royal Society of British Artists from 1946, and of the Royal Watercolors Society from 1959. He showed his first personal exhibition in London in 1944, and two years later presented paintings giving a narrative history of the Italian war. In 1957, still in London at Saint James Palace, Seago presented canvases he had realized during the world tour of the Duke of Edinburgh. Essential to a landscape artist, he remained faithful to an impressionistic atmosphere, attempting to capture the rapid touches from the shimmering of light, made to sometimes bathe together in a blur like that of Turner. He liked to translate English landscapes in particular, like those of Norfolk, but also painted many subjects from abroad.
