Alfred T. Bricher was born to Elizabeth Muir and William Bricher on April 10, 1837 in Portsmouth New Hampshire. By 1858, Bricher announced himself a professional painter, though he was mainly self-taught. Bricher’s subtle and serene style classified him as a premier painter of seascapes and ranked him among such other notable luminists as Martin Johnson Heade and John Frederick Kensett. He was known especially for his coastal scenes painted in Massachusetts, Maine, Rhode Island and Long Island between 1870 and 1890. Bricher exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, The Art Institute of Chicago, the Boston Athenaeum, the Brooklyn Art Association and the Boston Art Club.
