Birdsey’s bio: The pre-eminent Bahamian watercolorist of the late twentieth century, Alfred Birdsey is known for his atmospheric landscapes of Hamilton, St. Georges and the surrounding bays of Bermuda. Birdsey was also a successful commercial artist and painted numerous works that continue to be used to promote the America's Cup when it is sailed from Newport, RI, to Bermuda. On the island of Bermuda, his studio stood in the back garden of his home in Rosecote, in Paget, from 1968 until his death in 1996. Alfred Birdsey stands alone as the most significant modernist painter working in Bermuda during the second half of the 20th-century.
