George Alexander (1832-1913) was a little-known painter who lived in Leeds and painted local scenes and also views of the Lake District and Wales. Legend has it that he began as a tobacconist's errand boy and made his first drawings on the inside wrapping paper of tobacco packets. He studied under a Yorkshire painter James Burras and showed at the RA, RSA and in Yorkshire. Leeds City Art Gallery holds a large collection of his watercolours.
