Artist Biography

 

Abbey Alston was a British classical painter. Born in Yorkshire, Abbey (Abraham) Alston moved to Melbourne, Australia to study in the early 1880s. After several years there and having won a Gold Medal for painting, he returned to England, stopping in Paris on the way to further his studies. He settled in London becoming a successful painter of portraits and genre pictures.

 

He is best remembered today for his exercises in late classical painting, taking his lead from Lord Leighton, Alma Tadema, Waterhouse and Godward. Towards the end of his life he settled in America, where he died.
