Prolific Painter (S. E. Stevens)

According to Jeff Weber, S. E. Stevens is notable primarily for being prolific and sub-standard. All of his many paintings are of typical picturesque scenes, and none are painted with any distinction. He worked from WWII through the 1950s in England, doing paintings for several English dealers.
