Nicholas St John ROSSE ✿

Nicholas St John Rosse is a contemporary British painter, 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.
After leaving school Nicholas went to see Pietro Annigoni in Italy with a portfolio of drawings and three very beneficial years in Florence followed as a student with the master and attending the School of the Florence Academy:
“I drew, I painted, I learned at first hand about the preparation and use of traditional materials. Above all I watched Annigoni at work portraits, landscapes, large scale religious compositions, sculpture and lithographs.
He combined a zest for life with a totally uncompromising dedication to his art an attitude that has had a lasting influence on his students even though we have all developed different approaches to painting.”
