Hercules Brabazon Brabazon, Venice
The rather wonderfully named Hercules Brabazon Brabazon (1821 - 1906) was an independently wealthy amateur artist who resisted exhibiting his work until he was in his 70s. He is reported to have hailed taxis in London (particuarly on cold winter days) telling the driver to 'take him to Egypt' (meaning in fact the boat train). He also visited numerous other locations in Europe including Venice as this painting attests.
