Louis Burleigh Bruhl

Prolific artist

Born in 1862, died in 1942, Louis lived at Watford and Romford in the intervening years. He was a prolific oil and water-colour  artist, often producing small detailed  pictures. In time he became president of the Watercolour Society. He was contemporary of Alfred Bennett Bamford, with whom he often exhibited

In 1915 a selection of his Essex scenes was published in a book entitled  Essex water-colours, but did not include any of Benfleet. However his painting, depicting Benfleet, as seen from the creek, can be found in “Essex” by A.R.H. Moncrieff. Prints are also widely available on the internet.
