Nicholas St John Rosse

Nicholas St.John Rosse was born in 1945 in Hampstead, London, and was educated at University College School. 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, a few months' employment at Clifford Milburn (Reeves) gave him the opportunity to become familiar with the work of Pietro Annigoni. Nicholas went to see him in Italy with a portfolio of
drawings and three very beneficial years in Florence followed, as a student with the master and attending the Scuola Del Nudo of the Florence Academy.

Nicholas has exhibited widely in one-man shows in London, the counties and abroad and also in numerous group 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 is a regular contributor to various art magazines.

The artist has twice won the coveted Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Award. This Montreal based foundation exists specifically to encourage artists working in representational styles.

In 1981, Nicholas, and his family, moved to North Cornwall where the wild cliffs and beaches provide the artist with endless settings for his figure/beach
compositions. He is an active member of the St.Ives Society of Artists.

In 1998, he was commissioned by the Britannia Royal Naval College to paint a
portrait of the late Admiral Sir John Fieldhouse, now hanging in the Senior Gun Room with the portraits of famous Admirals of the past. This year Nicholas has
completed a commissioned portrait of Admiral Sir Henry Leach, which was handed over to the College at the end of June. It also hangs in the Senior Gun Room where it can be seen on the days the College is open to the public.
