Summary: 

Brabazon trained for a short time under James D'Egville and Alfred Downing Fripp, however he was largely self-taught. On trips to Spain, Italy, Egypt, the Indies and France, Brabazon executed scores of landscapes in watercolor. Through an inscription Brabazon identified the site depicted in the present drawing as Esmeh, however the site does not seem to exist.
