Nicholas St John Rosse

Nicholas St John Rosse was born in 1945 in Hampstead, London. From an early age he became interested in painting, encouraged and enthused by watching the landscape painter Donald Towner at work in the open air and visiting his studio. On leaving school, Nicholas went to see Pietro Annigoni in Italy with a portfolio of drawings and three beneficial years in Florence followed, as a student with the master and attending the Scuola Del Nudo of the Florence Academy. Nicholas has exhibited in numerous exhibitions including the R.A., the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, the Royal West of England Academy and the Royal Society of Marine Artists. He has twice won the coveted Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Award. In 1981, Nicholas moved to the North Cornish Coast where the beaches provide the artist with endless settings for his enchanting compositions of children playing.
