Antony Bream held his first major exhibition at the Fine Art Society in 1979, and subsequently has had one-man shows at numerous West End galleries including Derek Johns, St James’s Art Group, Messum’s and Rafael Valls. He has received major commissions from industry and commerce for large figure paintings, including the much admired Bar picture at Green’s Restaurant in St James’s.

Bream has worked extensively as a painter of portraits, interiors, and landscapes, and has travelled widely, painting en plein air in Australia, India, North Africa, Egypt, Yemen, Turkey, Kenya, the USA and Europe. In 2013 he exhibited paintings of the Holy Land and Petra at the Daggett Gallery, Kensington, and subsequently spent a month painting on the island of North Haven, Maine. More recently he has concentrated on a group of large-scale interiors and still lifes. His landscapes have focussed on the north Kent coast and several painting trips to Spain, most recently Segovia and Galicia. To mark their 150th anniversary, Bream was commissioned by the Savile Club in London’s Mayfair to paint a series of interiors of the club and portrait studies of members.
