Alfred Augustus Glendening Snr. (b. 25th July 1940 Hampton on Thames – d. 11 Dec 1921, Deptford).

From a humble background, he first worked as a railway clerk before devoting his life to landscape painting. He became one of the most popular Victorian landscape artists, painting realistic British Isles scenes. The River Thames, South Downs and Isle of Wight were favourites. As a member of the David Cox’s Betws-y-Coed artist’ colony, his paintings of Snowdonia’s mountains were strongly collected. These, and dramatic scenes of the Scottish Highland and the hills and lakes of the English Lake District, were among paintings regularly exhibited between 1865 and 1903 at the Royal Academy, British Institution and Suffolk Street. He should not be confused with his artist son, Alfred Illman Glendening (1861 to 1907).
