Philip Wilson Steer

Steer, Philip Wilson, 1860–1942, English landscape painter. Steer worked largely in the tradition of French impressionist painting and was considered the greatest English landscape painter of his day. He brought to his subjects a considerable understanding of pattern, color, space, and especially light effects. Examples of his work are Chepstow Castle, Music Room (Tate Gall., London) and a self-portrait (Uffizi). The Tate Gallery owns many of his works.
