Seago’s subject matter evolved within a fundamentally traditional genre, his methodology, style and technique contributed to an innovative interpretation of the rural, urban and marine scene.

This innovative interpretation, applied to landscapes around the world, relied on a wonderfully fluid and refreshing use of paint. His work is recognisably spontaneous – a moment captured in oil or watercolour, retaining the essential mood of the occasion whether vibrant or reflective.

Edward Seago was an English artist known for both his watercolours and oil paintings of beachscapes and street scenes. Working in a late Impressionistic style reminiscent of John Singer Sargent, Seago’s work is characterised by its carefully observed colour modulation and grounded sense of realism. Born on March 31, 1910, in Norwich, England, he went on to briefly study with the painter Sir Alfred Munnings, but was largely self-taught. During World War II, Seago was enlisted by the Royal Engineers to develop camouflage, as though he was unfit physically for serving as a soldier, his artistic talent offered other opportunities to aid in the war effort. The artist’s work was notably collected by Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, Prince Philip, and other members of British royalty. Today, Seago’s paintings are found in the collections of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the Royal Collection in London, and the National Portrait Gallery in London. He died on January 19, 1974 in London, England
