British Art: Contemporary Paintings by
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. 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 Scuola Del Nudo 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.”
