Sebastian Pether was the eldest son of Abraham Pether, and like his father painted chiefly moonlight views and nocturnal conflagrations. According to British author Freeman Marius O’Donoghue, “his works in this class are singularly truthful and harmonious in colour and should have brought him success; but early in life the necessity of providing for a large family drove him into the hands of the dealers, who purchased his pictures for trifling sums for copying purposes, to which they readily lent themselves, and consequently they were rarely seen at exhibitions…His life was one long struggle with adversity, which reached its climax when, in 1842, three pictures which, with the help of a friendly frame-maker, he sent to the Royal Academy were rejected.”
