Landscape painter and son of Alfred De Breanski Snr. He studied in Paris under Whistler and Pissarro and painted highland scenes in a style similar to that of his father, but in a courser and broader in handling. During the period of 1905 to 1920 De Breanski painted a series of English Garden scenes which were of a colourful and impressionistic style, and highly collected.
Although Alfred de Breanski Jnr is best known for his Scottish views, he did often paint in the Lake District, Cornwall and other parts of England and in Ireland. Exhibited at the Royal Academy and elsewhere.
