Edgar Iving Nicholson BSoA c1946-50

Thanks to Leigh Nicholson who contacted us recently, we are proud to display a few examples of paintings by her father Edgar Irving Nicholson.

Edgar started painting during WWII and soon captured scenes that today are invaluable records of the desert war.

Following the war he attended the BSoA circa 1946 – 1950. His teacher was Tom Freeth who encouraged him to pursue his influence of Pierre Bonnard.

Edgar continued his studies at the Royal College of Art before pursuing a highly successful career as an artist. His work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy, Courtalds and the GB Arts Council. He provided work for twenty-seven one-man shows and his paintings are owned privately as well as by public galleries on several continents.

Now living in New Zealand we wish Edgar well hoping that this dedication will revive his and others’ memories of those wonderful days.
