Alexander Mann showed early artistic talent and was taking art lessons from the headmaster of Glasgow School of Art by the time he was ten. In 1877 he settled in Paris to pursue his art education and he studied the work of the influential Bastien-Lepage, who led the movement towards painting en plein-air and realising subject matter as objectively and realistically as possible. Mann's adult life was recorded in a succession of sketchbooks in which he captured elements of his frequent foreign travels.
