From Una Platts book:

"BAXTER, Alfred Ernest 1878-1936
Born and educated in Christchurch. At first art was his hobby while his career was in business, but he had lessons in painting from Samuel Moreton, made frequent long painting expeditions to the southern lakes and South Westland and was later able to become a professional artist. Spent time in Europe from about 1929-33, studying under good masters: in 1932 painted with Sydney Thompson his friend in Concarneau. Exhibited at the Royal Academy and in the Paris Salon. On his return to Christchurch held a large exhibition of his work. Exhibited with CSA, Centennial Ex., and Canterbury Jubilee Ex. 1950. Represented in DAG, Hocken and McDougall."
